Man's death may have been murder for hire

Posted: Updated:
EDWARDS, MS (Mississippi News Now) -

The murder of an Edwards' man may have been planned, that's according to one law enforcement officer.

Last week Sergeant Richard Brown of the Hinds County Sheriff's Department said in court that the 2008 shooting death of 48-year-old Larry Hunter of Edwards is now being investigated as a murder-for-hire.

Brown testified in the preliminary hearing of 42-year-old David Scott Fultz and 28-year-old Kenny Bingham both of Edwards along with 28-year-old Kelvin Washington of Raymond. All three men were charged with capital murder in Hunter's death.

Authorities believe that Hunter was killed on February 11, 2008, while on the way to feed his horses about a mile away from his home.

Robbery may have been the motive because he received a tax refund check of $6,000 which was missing and never recovered.
