Man charged with murdering brother
A Gulfport man is arrested after allegedly shooting his younger brother multiple times in Poplarville.
Pearl River County Sheriff’s Department arrested 60-year-old Steven Stuart Tuesday night after his 53-year-old brother, John Stuart, was killed in his home on Newman Road.
According to Chief Investigator Marc Ogden, deputies went to the home on Tuesday morning in response to a welfare check and found John Stuart’s body, but no one else was there.
Through investigation, Chief Ogden believes the two were in an altercation before the shooting. Steven Stuart was being held today at the Pearl River County Jail with no bond pending initial court appearance.
