FULTON, Miss. (AP) - Bond has been denied five people arrested on charges in a fatal shooting in Mantachie this week.

Local news outlets report the five appeared Thursday in justice court in Itawamba County. Each of the five has been charged with capital murder in the death of Andre Taylor at his Mantachie home.

Those charged are Tonisha Antoinetta Johnson, 18, and Kyra Enez McClenton, 19, both of Tupelo; and Tyjuan Clevon Metcalf, 21, Demarco Kelly, 22, and Tyandre Darrell Thomas, 22, all of Clarksdale.

They are being held in the county jail.

Authorities say investigators believe Taylor was shot Sunday night when he confronted people who broke into his home in an attempt to steal a nearly three-pound stash of marijuana recovered at Taylor’s residence.
