Shamarius Ruffin

Jackson, Miss.

Bond was denied Friday to a third suspect in the kidnapping of 6-year-old Jashayla Hopson. The East Kemper Elementary School student was taken from her school Apr. 30.

Shamarius Ruffin, 25, was denied bond Friday. Wanda Dancy appeared in court Thursday and was also denied bond.

The first person arrested in the case, Jesse Mae Pollard, was also denied bond earlier.

Hopson turned up on a Lauderdale County road the day after she was taken. Authorities were notified after the child knocked on a resident's door looking for help.
