Strong felony criminal defense could help in capital murder case

A Mississippi man is facing life in prison or the death penalty for his alleged role in the death of a Hattiesburg woman. The 32-year-old was officially charged on Wednesday, April 24 with capital murder. With a charge as serious as this, the accused would most likely benefit from having a strong felony criminal defense team on his side.

According to reports, a 25-year-old female went missing in Nov. 2018. On April 4, 2019, authorities found her remains in Forrest County. Investigators are still trying to determine the cause of death at the state crime lab. It is unclear how long it will take the crime lab to finalize its review of this case. 

So far, three people have now been arrested in connection with this crime. The most recently accused is the only one facing a capital murder charge for his alleged role in the victim's death. Authorities have not shared with the public what evidence exists that connects this individual to the crime. 

In the state of Mississippi, capital murder is a serious crime and the consequences if convicted are significant -- death or a lifetime behind bars with or without the possibility of parole. When facing this type of charge, feeling hopeless is understandable. Thankfully, a number of defense options exist that may help this gentleman seek the best outcome possible under the circumstances. An experienced felony criminal defense attorney will have the ability to review the details of this case and question any evidence offered against the accused. In doing these things, new information may come to light that may benefit this individual's case.
