ABERDEEN, Miss. (WCBI) — Late Tuesday afternoon the Monroe County man accused of murder made his first court appearance. 46-year-old Christopher Lee Thompson remains in jail on a $300,000.00 bond. He is charged with beating 50-year-old Tommy Harlow to death. Harlow was found dead Sunday morning at his sister’s Church Road home in Hamilton. Investigators aren’t sure what led to an argument between the men.
Monroe County Coroner Alan Gurley says Harlow died from blunt force trauma.
