GULFPORT, MS (WLOX) - Dante O'Bryan Taylor, 27, had a preliminary hearing in Harrison County Justice Court on Wednesday. The case was bound over to a grand jury, and Taylor remains in the Harrison County Jail on a $1 million bond.

Taylor was arrested in late September for the deadly shooting of his uncle, Willie Taylor.

Police arrested Taylor during a traffic stop about seven hours later. Taylor had already petitioned for a court appointed attorney.
