Two More Charged in Teen's Death

Meridian, Miss. Meridian police say they have charged two more people in connection with the Aug. 24 shooting death of a 14-year-old DeLeon Wilson.

Detective Dareall Thompson says investigators have charged 44-year-old Karl Hubert Richardson with accessory after the fact and felon in possession of a firearm. Barbara Pruitt, 50, has been charged with accessory after the fact.

Meridian police say this case remains under investigation.

"We want to make sure we have everybody in custody that was involved. Like I said, it's still an ongoing investigation," said Thompson.

Thompson says Pruitt has bonded out of jail. However, Richardson is not eligible for bond, because he was out on bond for other charges when this crime happened.

Henry Armstrong, 49, was charged with Wilson's murder earlier this week.
