TCHULA, Miss. (WJTV) — After a judge decided to dismiss charges against four people in connection with a man’s death, Tchula’s police chief has made an arrest and looking for two more in the same case.
20-year-old Aavon Coffer has been arrested and charged with aggravated assault on a vulnerable adult, Thcula Police Chief Kenneth Hampton said.
Police are now looking for 19-year-old Kajarius Anderson and 18-year-old Kamechie Coffer. They are wanted for the same charge.
Chief Hampton was upset in July after a judge decided to dismiss the charges against four people in connection with the death of Clarence Blue.
In May of this year, Blue was at his home on Highway 12 in his wheelchair when Chief Hampton said initial reports showed he was beaten and robbed. He was taken to the hospital where he died the next day.
However, an autopsy revealed that Blue died from heart complications. The autopsy report said there was no trauma to Blue’s body, so a judge decided to drop the charges pending against the four people accused of second-degree murder.
The charges were dismissed without prejudice.
Three months later, Chief Hampton said he has more evidence in the case.
Aavon Coffer was arrested a few days ago.
Arrests warrants have been issued for Anderson and Kamechie Coffer. Anyone with information on their whereabouts, contact police.
