STARKVILLE, Miss. (WTVA) - The man accused of killing a woman at the Walmart in Starkville now faces another charge besides capital murder.

Tommy Chisholm is also charged with malicious mischief for damage to a police vehicle, which is a misdemeanor. Police say he received an additional charge of aggravated assault.

Chisholm made his initial court appearance Thursday in Municipal Court connection with the Saturday shooting death of Dr. Shauna Witt.

Police say the optometrist was fatally wounded in the eye clinic at the store by her estranged boyfriend.
