BILOXI, MS (WLOX) - Two people once considered "persons of interest" in a Biloxi homicide are now officially suspects.

Charles Pickell, 74, was found dead in his Beauvoir Manor apartment Saturday. A neighbor found the elderly man's body.

The Harrison County coroner said Pickell died of head injuries, and the case is being treated as a homicide.

Biloxi Police released photos Saturday night of two "persons of interest" who were wanted for questioning. That's when officers found out Jeremy Radau and Megan Kinberger were already in the Harrison County jail. The two were arrested in Gulfport on burglary charges, just a few hours after Pickell's murder.
