HANCOCK COUNTY, MS (WLOX) -

The double murder case of Myrick Curtis Laneaux has been bound over to a grand jury. Laneaux appeared before a Hancock County judge Friday for his preliminary hearing.

Laneaux, 27, shouted, “I’m innocent. Not guilty,” as he left the courtroom after the judge refused to reduce his $2.1 million bond.

He is accused of killing 28-year-old Kristina Quintini and 29-year-old Norris Demetrius Mueller in July.

Hancock County Coroner Jim Faulk said Quintini was shot several times, and Mueller was shot in the head. They were found in a home in the Bay Pines subdivision of Bay St. Louis

Investigators said a 6-month-old child was also shot.

Laneaux was originally arrested on auto theft charges on July 31. He was charged with two counts of murder on Aug. 3.

    Full-time Waveland city workers, primarily police officers, who take-home vehicles outside of the city limits could see a change to the city's policy soon. City leaders said the current policy is antiquated and needs to be rewritten into something that would benefit both the officers and the taxpayers.
