GALLMAN, MS (WLBT) - Sheriff Harold Jones said Thursday 41 year old David Dickerson will be prosecuted for capital murder by the Copiah County District Attorney. Dickerson is charged with the stabbing and shooting death of 36 year old Paula Hamilton, the mother of his teenage daughter.
Sheriff Jones says a representative with the State Attorney General's office was in the county for the stalking charge against Dickerson that Hamilton had filed. He was scheduled to appear in court on that charge Tuesday, the day of Hamilton's murder.
Sheriff Jones also tells us his office has located the motorcycle Dickerson rode to Hamilton's home on Martinsville Road. It was found Thursday in woods behind Hamilton's house.
