JACKSON, Miss. (AP) - A man charged with capital murder in fatal Jackson shooting earlier this week has been denied bond.

The Clarion-Ledger (https://on.thec-l.com/1s5REZL ) reports that 29-year-old Christopher Bennett appeared in court Thursday, having been charged with the Monday death of 37-year-old Chivas McElveen.

Police say McElveen was shot multiple times Monday night, robbed and had his car stolen. He was pronounced dead at the scene.

Bennett surrendered to police Wednesday after police issued a warrant for his arrest. It is unclear whether he has an attorney.
