Posted: Updated:

WARREN COUNTY, MS (WLBT)  A teenager is behind bars, charged with killing his mother's boyfriend.

18 year old Jeremy Bowlin is charged with murder and is being held without bond in Warren County. Sheriff Martin Pace says deputies responded to reports of a gun shot at a mobile home park in the 34-hundred block on Highway 80.

25 year old Timothy Harmon was found dead with a single gunshot wound to his chest.

Sheriff Pace says, "We did recover high powered hunting rifle on the scene that is believed to be a weapon that was used. It appears that they had been in an argument earlier in the night that just did not go away but escalated into violence just after four this morning."

Sheriff Pace says Bowlin has been in trouble with the law before. He was arrested in February and April of last year for auto and house burglary.
