14-year-old faces being charged as adult for death of Claiborne County juvenile

Published

Tuesday evening left a 16-year-old male deceased at the Hermanville Apartments on Highway 18.

A homicide investigation led to the detainment of a 14-year-old female, now identified as Twaneshia Hicks, in relation to the incident.

On Wednesday, Claiborne County Sheriff Edward Goods and Major Troy Kimble spoke with Vicksburg Daily news and informed us that Hicks is now being charged as an adult for murder.

An argument allegedly stemmed from a basketball game between Hicks and the victim, which led to the juvenile being stabbed and succumbing to his injuries.

Kimble stated that more arrests may arise from this incident, as adults may have been involved.

The name of the victim is being withheld at the moment. We will continue to update on this story as information becomes available to us.
