LEXINGTON, Miss. — Two men have been arrested following the shooting of a woman in Mississippi’s Delta region.
Holmes County Sheriff Willie March told local media Monday that 26-year-old Rodrekus Jimell Washington and 34-year-old Byrekus Washington have been charged with murder in the death of Mary Robinson.
It’s unclear if the men have lawyers to speak for them or have been before a judge to set bail.
Investigators say the 60-year-old Robinson died after being shot in the thigh while walking with two friends near her home in Tchula (CHOO’-luh) in the early hours of Sept. 6.
A neighbor told WLBT-TV that she estimates at least 20 shots were fired, including one that came through a wall and hit her nightstand.
Authorities began questioning the men within hours after the shooting.
