JACKSON, Miss. (AP) — Two teens have been arrested in connection with the fatal shooting of a sergeant in the Mississippi National Guard.
Jackson police tweeted that 19-year-old XaJavier King has been charged with murder and aggravated assault for the shooting of 24-year-old Stephen Matory at an apartment complex Thursday morning.
Police say 18-year-old Chaela Edwards has also been charged with being an accessory after the fact to murder.
