Two Arrested for Homicide

Two arrests were made in a Sunday homicide in Meridian.

Bobby Chapman, 39, and her son, Eric McDowell, 17, are charged with the murder of Marlon Maurice Davis, 45.

According to investigators, Chapman and Davis were a couple. The altercation occurred following an argument between the two.

Police say more arrests are possible.

"We feel like there may have been one more person involved according to witnesses," said Meridian detective Darrell Theall. "We're going to continue our investigation and continue interviewing people until we get to the bottom of it."

No weapons were found at the scene, only sticks. Autopsy results are expected Wednesday.

Bond for Chapman and McDowell was set at $50,000 each.
