HANCOCK COUNTY, MS (WLOX) - Jessie Clay Adams, the cousin of one of the victims in a recent double murder in the Kiln, has been arrested. Adams, 31, of Hancock County was charged Tuesday with Accessory after the Fact. He's being held on a $300,000 bond.
Monday, two people were arrested in Louisiana and charged in connection with the killings. Investigators said that Nicholas Schilling and Jessica Falgout have admitted their roles in the killings. Schilling is charged with Homicide, while Falgout is charged with Accessory After the Fact.
Saturday morning, the bodies of two men were discovered in a vehicle with Mississippi plates outside of an Abita Springs subdivision. Authorities said Joshua Adams, 34, of Magnolia, MS; and Robert Criswell, 27, of Abita Springs, LA, were both shot in the head.
The 2003 Chevy Tahoe they were found in had been parked at the end of a dead-end street on an undeveloped road in the subdivision. But investigators believe the pair were actually killed in the Kiln at a home on Highway 43.
