Emotional Scene in a Warren County Courtroom

Chaos broke out in a Warren County courtroom today. A man charged with first degree murder in the death of his uncle was denied bond.
A family member hyperventilated and another fainted when 35-year-old Joseph Patton was brought in before the judge.
Investigators say the victim, 62-year-old Alfred Patton, was found Tuesday night in a mobile home park, lying on the ground with a 26 inch ax buried in his throat.
Investigators say Joseph is seen on surveillance video at the Home Depot in Vicksburg purchasing the ax used to kill the victim as well as cleaning supplies such as Clorox and garbage bags.
Authorities say Joseph had been living with his uncle for about a month and he had recently taken out life insurance policies on the victim.
