No arrests were made in the case until more than two years later “after extensive efforts from the investigative unit of the Natchez Police Department,” according to a news release from NPD. They have since remained at the Adams County Jail. Kendarrius Davis has been issued a $500,000 bond and the others have not been issued a bond, according to court records.
Jameco Davis and Kendarrius Davis were 15 and 17 years old at the time of the murders and Jackson was 20.
Kendarrius Davis and Jackson are both scheduled for criminal pre-trial at 9 a.m. Tuesday, March 1. Jameco Davis is scheduled to appear for trial at 1:30 p.m. the same day when the court is expected to hear a “motion for dismissal for lack of a speedy trial,” according to the court docket.
Jameco Davis is represented by attorney Lisa Chandler, Kendarrius Davis is represented by attorney Kevin Colbert and Jackson is represented by attorney Ikeecia Colenberg, court records show.
