No Indictment This Year For Memorial Day Murderer

Chicot Memorial

BROOKHAVEN, MS (Ben Caxton) — A Missippi man accused of multiple murders will not be indicted this year. Lincoln County District Attorney Dee Bates told the Daily Leader newspaper that the delay stems from not having all the autopsy reports due to staffing problems at the state crime lab. 35-year-old Willie Godbolt was arrested May 28th after a Memorial Day Weekend killing spree that claimed the lives of 8 people, including a sheriff’s deputy. The killings May 27 and 28 occurred at three homes in and around Brookhaven. They began after a deputy responded to a disturbance call at a home where witnesses say Godbolt was arguing with his estranged wife. Prosecutors say the case will be taken to a grand jury no earlier than February. Godbolt is being held without bail in the meantime.
