Victim’s Family Responds to Accused Killer: “You Don’t Have A Soul”

Chicot Memorial

(Jackson, MS)– The family of a South Jackson homicide victim 85 year old James Hankins has choice words to say about the man police say is now charged in the case. “To me, a person like you does not have a heart. You don’t have a soul,” said Devonda Walley. Her words for the accused killer of her father remain raw with anger and sadness. Even though police said 19 year old Joshua Dukes killed Hankins two months ago, for her it might as well have happened yesterday. Dukes now faces three charges of capital murder: one for Hankins and two for the robbery and shooting of two men 27 ear old Daniel Gomez and 22 year old Eli Nunez Sanchez. Dukes has not yet gone before a judge for a preliminary hearing. The Walley family plans to be at Dukes trial, depending on how he pleads.
