Cornell Miles made his initial appearance in Vicksburg Municipal Court Tuesday afternoon. Miles is charged with first degree murder in the Friday night’s killing of A’Treio Markis Richards.

Miles made his court appearance in the courtroom of Judge Angela Carpenter who set his bond on the murder charge at $2 million. He was also charged as a felon in possession of a firearm. Carpenter set his bond on that charge at $30,000. If Miles manages to post his bond, he must wear a GPS ankle monitor and adhere to a 7 p.m. to 7 a.m. curfew nightly.

Vicksburg police along with Warren County Sheriff’s officers arrested Miles Monday morning at his place of employment, Tyson Foods. Lt. Johnnie Edwards, Criminal Investigation Division commander, credited a Crime Stoppers tip for the information that led to the arrest.

Police also stated in a press release that this incident was the result of a fight that occurred at LD’s lounge Oct. 6. It is unclear if this is related to the homicide that occurred on the same night near the lounge.

Police said no further arrests are expected related to this particular case.

Battlefield Discount Drugs on Indiana Avenue was the site of a break-in and robbery around 9:23 p.m. Tuesday.

According to Vicksburg police, the suspects are two males. The duo reportedly stole an unknown amount of codeine and left the scene in a grey SUV or van.

According to owner John Storey, a Vicksburg police officer’s daughter happened to observe the robbery from the gas station up the hill.  She went to a safe location to call her father, who immediately dispatched officers to the scene and then called Storey to alert him as well.

“That’s a community,” Storey said. “I cannot say enough good things about this community and our Vicksburg Police Department.”

Police in Flowood, Mississippi, also reported a pharmacy break-in last night. The two male suspects left in a grey Dodge Caravan with Arizona tags believed to be a rental vehicle.

Police are working under the assumption that the two incidents are related.
