COPY-Brother of murdered man held on bond of $1.2M

GULFPORT, Miss. (AP) - Gulfport police say a man wanted on an accessory charge in the killing of a murder suspect has been taken into custody.

The Sun Herald reports ( ) 28-year-old Roderick Victor Minter was arrested Wednesday in an investigation of the murder of Darcel Marquis Anderson.

Police said the shooting occurred at or near Club SinSations.

Minter, the older brother of the man Anderson was accused of killing, is held on a $1.2 million bond.

In the murder case, 48-year-old Ray Charles Stapleton is accused of shooting Anderson in the head outside the club in October.

Anderson was awaiting trial on a murder charge in the shooting of 20-year-old Iszaya Minter, who was killed outside the Moon Club in May. Iszaya Minter's death was believed to be a case of mistaken identity.
