Couple Out On Bond For Robbery, Now In Jail For Murder

They bonded out of a South Mississippi jail after being accused of committing a violent crime.

Now that same couple, along with their nephew, is once again in jail accused of murder.

Back in December, Pearl River County deputies charged 28 year-old Carey Williams and his wife 29 year-old Tequana Williams with robbery for allegedly car jacking an elderly woman and threatening to kill her.

The two were later released on $15,000 bond.

Then this week the couple was back in jail.This time in Louisiana after police there discovered the body of 85 year-old Edith Blackwell in the trunk of her car in a wooded area in Bogalusa.

Carey and Tequana Williams and their nephew 21 year-old Laroncus Smith were arrested after trying to cash the Tylertown woman's checks. Once extradited the three suspects will be charged with murder.

As for the robbery case, it went before a Pearl River County grand jury yesterday but so far officials say no decision has been reached yet.
