The town of Mantachie was shaken up on July 12 by the first murder there in more than four decades.

Armed robbery is believed to have been the motive that led to the shooting death of 27-year-old Andre S. Taylor.

Itawamba County Sheriff Chris Dickinson said “We are confident we have all the individuals involved in this murder in custody and off the streets."

22-year-old Demarco Kelly, 22-year-old Tyandre Thomas, 21-year-old Tyjuan Metcalf, 19-year-old Kyra McClenton, and 19-year-old Tonisha Johnson have been charged with capital murder.
