Vicksburg Carjacker Indicted for Murder

VICKSBURG, MS (Ben Caxton) — The man whose crajacking at a Vicksburg Casino led to the fiery deaths of two men in a fatal accident while fleeing police has been indicted. 26-year-old Deon Jamaal Hatten is charged with unarmed carjacking, one count of fleeing or eluding a law enforcement officer, and two counts of felony murder. Prosecutors say that Hatten pulled a woman out of her vehicle in the early mornings hours of August 5th of last year at Riverwalk Casino, taking her 2007 pickup, and leaving the casino parking area at a high rate of speed. During his escape, the truck driven by Hatten collided head-on with another vehicle containing 30-year-old Jared Develle Brinner and 32-year-old Ron Lydell Hedrick. The car caught fire and was engulfed in flames when Vicksburg Police arrived. Both Brinner and Hedrick died instantly at the scene.
