MAGNOLIA, Miss. (AP) - A McComb man has been indicted for first-degree murder in connection with the Aug. 5, 2015, shooting death of his 10-year-old cousin, according to Pike County Circuit Court records.

The Enterprise-Journal reports (https://bit.ly/1rbQNHd ) that Willie J.?Wilkinson Jr., 37, allegedly shot and killed Ja’Darrius K.?Wilkinson with a stolen .22-caliber handgun in the Baertown community of McComb.
