Walter Lee Young surrendered to JPD after he was charged with capital murder in the death of 81 year-old Lee Kendrick. Young is 21. Young contacted Hinds County Sheriff candidate Victor Mason and turned himself in to police with Mr. Mason's assistance. Kendrick was shot to death last week in a vacant unit at the Cedarstone Apartments in North Jackson.
Police also arrested and charged Loren Shell, 24, with capital murder last week. Several law enforcement sources told JJ she is a prostitute. Kendrick's Buick sedan was stolen after the murder and recovered in Jefferson County. Security camera video at a Jackson gas station showed Shell getting out of the Buick and into another car.
