The daughter of a former mayor in Desoto County was identified as one of the victims in what authorities describe was a suicide and a murder

Investigators in Tallahatchie County were probing Sunday’s discovery of 35 year old Mandy Baker, and her live-in boyfriend 33 year old Roger Murphy Jr., in the home the couple shared fourteen miles from Charleston. Investigators believe the man’s father killed Baker when he learned of his son’s suicide. Bond for Roger Murphy Sr., who has been charged with Baker’s murder, was set at $350,000. The victim’s father is a former Horn Lake Mayor and Southaven police officer who was unsuccessful in his bid to serve as Desoto County Sheriff.
