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.

Vicksburg police have made an arrest in the Friday night slaying of 19-year-old A’Treio Makis Richards on Elizabeth Circle.

Cornell Antonio Miles, 32, was taken into custody at 11:18 a.m. Monday at Tyson Foods, 1785 Interplex Circle.

Warren County Sheriff Martin Pace along with several deputies and Vicksburg Police officers arrested Miles at the plant, and he was transported to the Vicksburg Police Department. Miles’ vehicle was seized as potential evidence in the investigation.

Police were called to Richard’s shooting in the 100 block of Elizabeth Circle at 8:50 p.m. Friday. When they arrived, they found Richards had been fatally shot in his upper left chest and was lying in the street. The deputy county coroner pronounced him dead at the scene.

Police say the shooting came about as a result of a fight at LD’s Kitchen that occurred Oct. 6. Whether it is connected with the shooting that happened at LD’s that night has yet to be determined. Three people were shot at LD’s and one, Wade Carter Jr., died as a result of his wounds. The suspect wanted in connection with the LD’s shooting, James Earl Winters, 29, is still at large.

Miles is charged with one count of first degree murder in connection with the Richards homicide and will be arraigned in Vicksburg Municipal Court Tuesday, Nov. 10, at 1 p.m. He will remain in custody until that time.

Miles was convicted in 2010 of aggravated assault and sentenced to three years in the Mississippi Department of Corrections by Circuit Judge Isadore Patrick for a 2006 incident that also occurred in Vicksburg.

Investigator Tillman Clifton has been the lead investigator on this case for the Vicksburg Police Department. Lt. Johnnie Edwards, CID Commander, credits Crime Stoppers tips for the information that lead to Miles’ arrest. No additional arrests are anticipated at this time.
