Bond revoked for suspect in murder conspiracy

FULTON, Miss. (AP) - Bond has been revoked for a burglary suspect now accused of conspiring to murder witnesses in the case.

Itawamba County Sheriff Chris Dickinson tells the Northeast Mississippi Daily Journal (http://bit.ly/17OB3sR ) that 43-year-old Matthew Graham was arrested at his home in Fulton this past week.

Graham was free on bond for his alleged involvement in a July burglary of a home.

Dickinson says Graham allegedly conspired to kill Danny Grimes and Junior Hood, who also face burglary charges, as well as the victim, Wayne Cleveland.

Dickinson says a second suspect, whose name has not been released, was also in custody.

Dickinson says Graham tried to pay an uncover officer to have the witnesses killed. He says money had exchanged hands, resulting in the arrests.
