Separate violent incidents last week resulted in two deaths.
On Dec. 4 at approximately 9 a.m., the Bolivar County Sheriff’s Department responded to a 911 call from a homeowner in the 4000 block of MS Highway 8 East.
He said three male subjects were attempting to break into his home and that shots had been fired.
Deputies arriving at the scene found Aundra Lambert Jr., 20, had been shot and he was pronounced dead shortly after his arrival to Bolivar Medical Center.
The two other suspects, Tyler Cameron, 20, and Jermaine Jones, 22, were apprehended with assistance from the Cleveland Police Department.
Both Cameron and Jones were charged with attempted burglary, shooting into an occupied dwelling and conspiracy to commit a crime.
Later that evening at approximately 10 p.m., Cleveland Police responded to a 911 call at 511 Lee St.
Police Chief Buster Bingham said officers arriving at the scene found Devonna Hutton, 36, lying on the ground.
A female subject was over Hutton performing CPR.
Pafford EMS arrived on the scene and determined Hutton had suffered a stab wound and she was pronounced dead at the scene.
Police arrested Ben Williams, 46, who is accused of stabbing Hutton after the two got into an argument that resulted in an altercation.
Williams was brought to the police station and charged with one count of murder.
Bingham said Williams’ bond has been set at $10,000 and he has completed his preliminary hearing.
