Two Arrested In Connection To Body Found

Two people are in jail Monday morning in Lamar county facing armed robbery and murder charges. Shannon Landry of Purvis, 22, and Robert Grant of Lumberton, 35, were arrested Sunday.

The two are accused of murdering 38-year-old Arthur Joshua. His body was found early Saturday morning in Lumberton in a wooded area near Ed Reid Road.

Joshua, Grant and Landry are suspected of breaking into a home on Ed Reid Road late Friday night, and robbing the couple inside. Deputies found bullet holes, and after searching the area near the home, they discovered Joshua's body.

No word yet on a motive. Investigators say the suspects may have known the couple inside the home.
