JPD issues arrest warrants in hotel murder.

JPD has issued an arrest warrant for Darion Givens in the murder of an unidentified Hispanic male at the American Star Inn on 2655 I-55 South.  JPD charged Tiffany Brister with Accessory after the fact of capital murder and are also seeking Crystal Chancellor for questioning.  Givens is well known to law enforcement.

JPD issued this statement:

On Saturday, July 25, 2015, Precinct 1 officers responded to American Star Inn located at 2655 I-55 South regarding a shooting. During the preliminary investigation it was learned that an unidentified Hispanic male, later identified as Juan Carlos had been shot once in the parking lot of this location. He was transported to UMMC for medical treatment where he succumbed to injuries shortly after arrival and was pronounced deceased.

On July 26, 2015, Robbery/Homicide Detectives located the Ford Taurus used in this incident and detained Tiffany Brister. She was later questioned and subsequently charged with Accessory After the Fact of Capital Murder.

On July 27, 2015, Robbery/Homicide Detectives identified Darion Givens as one of the suspects involved in this incident. He has been charged with Capital Murder. As a result of the investigation, Crystal Chancellor has been charged with Capital Murder. Warrants have been secured and issued for them both.

Darion Givens has a previous arrest for a 2010 Murder in Hinds County.

Anyone with any information on the whereabouts of Darion Givens and/or Crystal Chancellor is urged to contact the Jackson Police Department at 601-960-1234 or 355-TIPS (8477).

Givens was indicted last year for house burglary.  The indictment states that he and Jalen Johnson broke into and robbed the home of a Betty Turner on Meadow Lane in South Jackson.  Givens pleaded guilty to a charge of receiving stolen property.  Hinds County Circuit Judge Bill Gowan sentenced him to a prison sentence of four years and imposed a $750 fine on April 21.

However, Givens was also indicted for murder in the death of Felicia Miller in 2010.  WAPT reported:

District Attorney Robert Shuler Smith withdrew the charges against Givens.  State medical examiner Dr. Thomas Deering testified that he could not determine if the death was a homicide of suicide (See p.31 below).   The defense obtained a second opinion on the autopsy from Dr. Stephen Hayne, the former state medical examiner. He stated the wound was consistent with that of a self-inflicted gunshot wound.  There were also no actual witnesses to the shooting.  The victim's family also recommended that the District Attorney not pursue charges against Givens.  Circuit Judge Jeff Weill approved the requests on November 9, 2012.  Hinds County public defender Allison Kelly represented the defendant.

Hey boys & girls, remember when your elementary teacher warned you about eating paste?
3:36 did not follow the teacher's advise.

5:46. Terrible retort. Terrible. I thought3:36 was clever and spot on. You on the other hand, were simply random. Best of luck when you lose your mind as we finally lower that redneck, meaningless, stupid ass, outdated, embarrassing "flag" of your heritage. Can you spell KKK?

3:36, your mom (A.K.A 8:06) really took up for you. I thought 5:46 was really spiffy in his reply. In fact, have you noticed you 2 are the only ones acting a fool in public? I bet you 2 are a sight to behold in Wal-Mart, you know, walking the isles and holding hands. Can you spell INCEST?

Who is the Hottest Reporter in Jackson?

Trollfest '09

Trollfest '07 was such a success that Jackson Jambalaya will once again host Trollfest '09. Catch this great event which will leave NE Jackson & Fondren in flames. Othor Cain and his band, The Black Power Structure headline the night while Sonjay Poontang returns for an encore performance. Former Frank Melton bodyguard Marcus Wright makes his premier appearance at Trollfest singing "I'm a Sweet Transvestite" from "The Rocky Horror Picture Show." Kamikaze will sing his new hit, “How I sold out to da Man.” Robbie Bell again performs: “Mamas, don't let your babies grow up to be Bells” and “Any friend of Ed Peters is a friend of mine”. After the show, Ms. Bell will autograph copies of her mug shot photos. In a salute to “Dancing with the Stars”, Ms. Bell and Hinds County District Attorney Robert Smith will dance the Wango Tango.

Wrestling returns, except this time it will be a Battle Royal with Othor Cain, Ben Allen, Kim Wade, Haley Fisackerly, Alan Lange, and “Big Cat” Donna Ladd all in the ring at the same time. The Battle Royal will be in a steel cage, no time limit, no referee, and the losers must leave town. Marshand Crisler will be the honorary referee (as it gives him a title without actually having to do anything).

Meet KIM Waaaaaade at the Entergy Tent. For five pesos, Kim will sell you a chance to win a deed to a crack house on Ridgeway Street stuffed in the Howard Industries pinata. Don't worry if the pinata is beaten to shreds, as Mr. Wade has Jose, Emmanuel, and Carlos, all illegal immigrants, available as replacements for the it. Upon leaving the Entergy tent, fig leaves will be available in case Entergy literally takes everything you have as part of its Trollfest ticket price adjustment charge.

Donna Ladd of The Jackson Free Press will give several classes on learning how to write. Smearing, writing without factchecking, and reporting only one side of a story will be covered. A donation to pay their taxes will be accepted and she will be signing copies of their former federal tax liens. Ms. Ladd will give a dramatic reading of her two award-winning essays (They received The Jackson Free Press "Best Of" awards.) "Why everything is always about me" and "Why I cover murders better than anyone else in Jackson".

In the spirit of helping those who are less fortunate, Trollfest '09 adopts a cause for which a portion of the proceeds and donations will be donated: Keeping Frank Melton in his home. The “Keep Frank Melton From Being Homeless” booth will sell chances for five dollars to pin the tail on the jackass. John Reeves has graciously volunteered to be the jackass for this honorable excursion into saving Frank's ass. What's an ass between two friends after all? If Mr. Reeves is unable to um, perform, Speaker Billy McCoy has also volunteered as when the word “jackass” was mentioned he immediately ran as fast as he could to sign up.

In order to help clean up the legal profession, Adam Kilgore of the Mississippi Bar will be giving away free, round-trip plane tickets to the North Pole where they keep their bar complaint forms (which are NOT available online). If you don't want to go to the North Pole, you can enjoy Brant Brantley's (of the Mississippi Commission on Judicial Performance) free guided tours of the quicksand field over by High Street where all complaints against judges disappear. If for some reason you are unable to control yourself, never fear; Judge Houston Patton will operate his jail where no lawyers are needed or allowed as you just sit there for minutes... hours.... months...years until he decides he is tired of you sitting in his jail. Do not think Judge Patton is a bad judge however as he plans to serve free Mad Dog 20/20 to all inmates.

Trollfest '09 is a pet-friendly event as well. Feel free to bring your dog with you and do not worry if your pet gets hungry, as employees of the Jackson Zoo will be on hand to provide some of their animals as food when it gets to be feeding time for your little loved one.

Relax at the Fox News Tent. Since there are only three blonde reporters in Jackson (being blonde is a requirement for working at Fox News), Megan and Kathryn from WAPT and Wendy from WLBT will be on loan to Fox. To gain admittance to the VIP section, bring either your Republican Party ID card or a Rebel Flag. Bringing both and a torn-up Obama yard sign will entitle you to free drinks served by Megan, Wendy, and Kathryn. Get your tickets now. Since this is an event for trolls, no ID is required. Just bring the hate. Bring the family, Trollfest '09 is for EVERYONE!!!

This is definitely a Beaver production.

Dr. Heddy Matthias and Lori Gregory will face off in the undercard dueling with dangling participles and other um, devices. Robbie Bell will perform Her two latest songs: My Best Friends are in the Media and Mama's, Don't Let Your Babies Grow up to be George Bell. Sid Salter of The Clarion-Ledger will host "Pin the Tail on the Trial Lawyer", sponsored by State Farm.

There will be a hugging booth where in exchange for your young son, Frank Melton will give you a loooong hug. Trollfest will have a dunking booth where Muhammed the terrorist will curse you to Allah as you try to hit a target that will drop him into a vat of pig grease.
