PEARL, Miss. (AP) - A black man accused of killing an outspoken white supremacist was taken to the scene of the crime Monday as authorities continued their investigation.
Vincent McGee said he had not known Richard Barrett was a racist leader.
McGee seemed cheerful for a man in shackles and accused of murder, joking with deputies outside the home where Barrett's body was found stabbed, beaten and burned last week.
Barrett was known for traveling the country promoting segregationist views. He also founded a group called the Nationalist Movement and ran a school for skinheads in Mississippi.
