The indictments handed down by a Bolivar County grand jury were: James Jackson, sexual battery, Dec. 23, 2012; Jabroski Lloyd, murder, Oct. 29, 2011; Jabroski Lloyd, aggravated assault, firearm enhancement and kidnapping, March 10, 2013; Ceasar Johnson, intimidating a witness and two counts of possession of deadly weapon by felon, Nov. 1, 2012; Quintarus Hayes, leaving the scene of an accident, July 15, 2012.
Jackson, who was 35 at the time of the incident, was charged with rape after he allegedly took a female an abandoned house off Miss. Highway 1 and forced himself upon the victim.
Lloyd, 21 at the time of his arrest, of Gunnison eligibly held the driver of a blue Neon at gunpoint after the he tried to rob him.
In the earlier morning hours March 10, 2013, a Bolivar County Sheriff’s dispatcher received a call from an off-duty deputy that subjects in the Neon had run into the rear of his personal vehicle.
The subject driving the vehicle, which held four passengers, backed up and fled the scene.
The deputy then turned around and followed calling for assistance.
While the vehicle was slowed, two subjects jumped out. The deputy recognized both subjects and continued to pursue the blue Neon.
As the deputy was pursuing the vehicle, two shots were fired back towards him, striking his vehicle.
The deputy discontinued his pursuit and went back to retrieve his patrol unit.
The deputy located both subjects that jumped out the vehicle and took them into custody and transported them to Rosedale Police Department until other deputies arrived.
After further investigation, deputies were able to obtain information that lead to the arrest of Lloyd.
Lloyd was taken into custody in Rosedale later that morning and transported to the Bolivar County Regional Correctional Facility.
Johnson was originally taken into custody after an investigation in the death of Gregory Johnson, whose automobile had run into an apartment complex.
"When we arrived on the scene, we found Johnson 's body in the front seat of his vehicle," said Bolivar County Sheriff Kelvin Williams at the time. "Our initial thoughts were that there had been some kind of confrontation and Johnson had put the car in gear attempting to flee when he was shot. The car likely was put in reverse and rolled into the building."
Judge Charles Webster presided over the grand jury.
The Bolivar Commercial will have more on these cases as they go to trial.
