Suspect in Belhaven murder on trial

JACKSON, Miss.- Gerome Moore, who was charged with capitol murder in the death of 69-year-old Carolyn Temple in the Belhaven neighborhood in 2015, is set to begin trial on Monday at the Hinds County Courthouse.

Police said Temple was robbed and shot in the driveway of a friends home on Euclid Street in Belhaven. She was shot in the stomach and taken to the hospital, but later passed away.

Moore and two others, Antral Jones and Antwain Dukes, were arrested for her death and in connection with several other crimes in the area. Those crimes included carjackings and house burglaries. Dukes, 18, was sentenced earlier this year to 25-years in prison for his role in Temple’s murder.

Moore is already serving five years for escaping from the Hinds County Jail.
