BROOKHAVEN, Miss. (AP) — A judge is setting bail for three men charged in the shooting death of a Mississippi woman who officials say walked in on a burglary.

The Daily Leader reports Brookhaven Municipal Judge Brad Boerner set $1 million bail for 19-year-old Jatavious Berry of Brookhaven and 24-year-old Justin Anderson of Natchez on Tuesday. He set bail at $2 million for 18-year-old Adrian Smith of Brookhaven, saying he's a higher risk to flee because he was arrested at the Jackson airport.

The three are accused of participating in the July 20 shooting of Zariah Newton.

A fourth wanted man, Shawan Allen, died in nearby Wesson in a shootout with police after a manhunt.

Boerner is assigning a public defender to each man and says preliminary hearings examining evidence will be scheduled later.
