Man Arrested On Murder Charge

A George County man faces capital murder charges in a weekend slaying. Authorities say an officer stopped Fred Sanford Spicer Junior for suspicious driving on U-S 90 in Pascagoula.  He was then arrested on a murder charge.

Captain Al Hillman of the George County Sheriff's Department says the truck Spicer was driving belonged to Edmond Herbert. Hillman says when a deputy went to Herbert's home to ask why Spicer had his vehicle, Herbert was found dead.

Hillman declines to release any details about how Herbert may have been killed.
