SOUTHAVEN, Miss. (AP) - The case against a 20-year-old Memphis man, arrested during an undercover drug bust in Southaven in which another suspect was killed, is going to a DeSoto County grand jury.

Teon Katchens is charged with conspiracy to commit a felony, possession of a controlled substance with intent to distribute and child abuse.

The Commercial Appeal reports (https://bit.ly/1ow63vj ) that Katchens was arrested on May 28 during the undercover drug bust that went wrong.

Investigators say a man identified as Jeremy Vann tried to run over a police officer when the drug deal went awry. Vann was shot and later died at a hospital. Katchens, who was also in the car, was arrested. A 3-year-old boy in the car was not injured.

Katchens is being held on $100,000 bond.
