PEARL, MS (WLOX) - The man convicted of murdering a Wiggins woman and wounding two others appears to have killed himself.

Gregory Glen Ferguson, 51, died Thursday at the Central Mississippi Correctional Facility in Rankin County.

Ferguson was convicted and sentenced to life in prison for the 2006 murder of Tina Havard. Ferguson also shot and injured Wiggins real estate agent Dottie Lanier and Havard's 15-year-old nephew.

Ferguson had been stalking Havard and used a bogus name to look at her house, which was for sale.
