Hearing rescheduled for man accused of beating cousin to death

JACKSON COUNTY, MS (WLOX) - A hearing for the Vancleave man accused of killing his 16-year-old cousin has been rescheduled for June 13.

Last month, a judge denied bond for Dexter Kelley after saying he was a danger to the community.

Kelley, 19, is accused of beating 16-year-old Cliff Allyn to death and leaving his body in the woods off Nanny Rd.

Investigators have not released a possible motive for the killing. If convicted of first-degree murder, Kelley faces life in prison.
