RIPLEY, Miss. (AP) - Two people have been arrested and charged with first-degree murder in the 2016 shooting death of a Mississippi man outside one of the suspect’s camper.

WTVA-TV reported that 28-year-old Jacob Riley Lewis of Walnut and 39-year-old Jacquelyn Caldwell of Walnut have been arrested by Tippah County sheriff’s deputies.

Deputies say 31-year-old Joshawa Hopkins of Falkner died after he was shot Aug. 12, 2016.

Investigators say Hopkins was shot outside a camper belonging to Lewis. But they have not released details of what led to the shooting.

Bond was set for Lewis and Caldwell at $200,000 each. It was not known if they have attorneys yet to comment on the charges.

The investigation is continuing.
