Perry County Men Arrested, Charged With Muder

Two Perry County men have been arrested and face murder charges in connection with a murder in the Desoto National Forrest.

Perry County officials say Patrick Lee Breland, 29, and his uncle, Felder Lynn Breland, 44, were visiting the Desoto Forrest last Monday, when an argument broke out between them and a group of campers. One of the campers, Chuck Mackiewicz, was struck several times in the face with a shotgun. He died four days later.

The Brelands are in the Perry County Jail under a $500,000 bond.
