WARREN COUNTY, MS (WLBT) - A teenager was arrested, charged with killing his mother's boyfriend.  18 year old Jeremy Bowlin was charged with murder and was being held without bond in Warren county Thursday.

Sheriff Martin Pace said deputies responded to reports of a gun shot at a mobile home park in the 3400 block on Highway 80 early Thursday morning.  25 year old Timothy Harmon was found dead with a single gunshot wound to his chest.  

"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," said Sheriff Pace.

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