HATTIESBURG, Miss. (AP) — A third man has been arrested in the death of a man in Mississippi last weekend.

Hattiesburg Police spokesman Ryan Moore told news outlets 19-year-old Klayton King was arrested Sunday and charged with hindering prosecution and conspiracy to sell narcotics.

The charges stem from the death of 19-year-old Jack Eagan Kelly early Saturday.

Moore said 22-year-old Alex Emmanuel Roberts Rivera and 23-year-old Delbert Edgar Kennedy III were arrested Saturday. Rivera is charged with second-degree murder. Kennedy is charged with accessory after the fact of second-degree murder.

Kelly was dropped off to an ambulance crew shortly before midnight Friday on U.S. Highway 49. He was taken to a hospital where he died. His cause of death has not been released.

It was not known if the men have attorneys yet.
