Bail denied for capital murder suspect

Corey Hodge charged in shooting that killed Jimmy Pierce

A judge denied bail at a Tuesday hearing for a capital murder suspect. Police say Jimmy Pierce was sitting outside May 16 at the Northwest Plaza Apartments on West Street when two people approached him asking for his wallet. A Jackson police investigator testified that a witness standing next to Pierce said the victim stood up, held up his hands and said, “We don’t have anything.” The witness told officers that Pierce tried to knock the gun out of the suspect’s hand, which was when he was shot twice in the chest. Pierce was taken to the University of Mississippi Medical Center, where he died, police said. LeAndrew Williams, 15, and Corey Hodge, 19, who are cousins, are both charged in the case. Hodge was released from jail during the hearing on Tuesday. Bonny Fields, 24, is charged with complicity after the fact. Fields told authorities that Williams and Hodge were his nephews.
