News in Brief: New Info in Wayne County deaths, Guilty then Not, The Scam That’s Just Spam

Jackson, Miss– Here’s some of the morning’s top stories, all in one place. 

More information about the triple murder in Wayne County. Willie Miller made his first court appearance after being charged with murder of Sonya Taylor, and two others that were found burned in a truck. Miller tells the judge he was on Crystal Meth and painkillers when it all went down. Miller also says that after he killed Taylor, he raped a woman that was there, before killing the two others. He said they were trash talking him about a deer he killed, reports WTOK.

SCAM ALERT: You may see an email from the Mississippi Office of Homeland Security, asking for a clearance fee of $1,250 bucks. Attorney General Jim Hood says it’s ruse to get your dough. The Homeland Security Office says they won’t ask for your money.

Guilty or not? The jury says not in the sexual harrassment case against former Jackson County Sheriff Mike Byrd. He was originally found guilty and had to pay over $250 grand to former deputy Kristen Siebert, but Byrd appealed and the ruling was thrown out on lack of evidence. Siebert’s attorney says they’ll appeal.

Get ready for the weekend, warmer than usual but severe weather is expected for Sunday. Most of central Mississippi could see heavy rain and high winds, tornadoes can’t be ruled out.
