JACKSON COUNTY, MS (WLOX) -

A Moss Point man accused of stabbing a woman to death in January is now facing a second murder charge after an autopsy revealed she was pregnant.

A Jackson County grand jury handed down the two-count murder indictment against 34-year-old Brandon Colby Smith. Smith is accused of killing 30-year-old Elizabeth Corene Jones in her Vancleave home Jan. 7.

An autopsy shows Jones died from multiple stab wounds and trauma to the neck. 

Sheriff Mike Ezell said Smith and Jones knew each other, but a motive for the killing has not been determined.

Smith’s bond was set at $250,000 after he was arrested on the first murder charge. Ezell said he was out on bond when he was arrested Wednesday. He is being held at the Jackson County Adult Detention Center awaiting a court appearance.
