Suspects Charged in Tuesday Shooting


Meridian police have charged a pair of suspects in the shooting death of TeRandy Hampton, 37. His body was discovered at a house on Grand Avenue Tuesday around 9:30 a.m.

Detectives took a suspect into custody shortly after the shooting. Hours later, members of the DART team located a second suspect.

22-year-old Jacolby Newell and 18-year-old Torvoria McGlothin, both of Meridian, have been charged with capital murder and armed robbery.

Bond for each was set at $500,000 on the armed robbery count. There is no bond set for the capital murder charges.

Police say a key factor in solving the case quickly was eyewitnesses who immediately called 911. Officials say they and the victim's family are grateful for citizens being "nosy" and taking action.
