She was a friend of George Harris, 57, who was found shot to death Monday morning on the front porch of his Corinth home.

Chief Dance says a second suspect, Darius Deen, 20, was arrested Friday afternoon at a Booneville motel.

The chief says police also found a .357 revolver in Deen’s room, that is believed to be the murder weapon.
