A man has been charged with capital murder after he stabbed a 73-year-old man to death in order to steal his motorbike.
Corey Lepard, 33, was arrested at 290 Stokes Robinson Road on outstanding warrants for aggravated assault and arson on August 19.
At the same time, Jackson’s officers had recovered a stolen motorcycle from McClure Road. After further investigation, Jackson police received information that Lepard delivered the neon green Kawasaki motorcycle to a garage for repairs and told the garage owner he had killed a man for the motorbike.
On May 26, Herbert McComb, 73, was found stabbed in the head multiple times in his garage. McComb’s neon green Kawasaki motorcycle was found missing from the garage.
On Tuesday, Lepard was denied bond for the capital murder of Herbert McComb.
Officers say another suspect is involved in the murder and another arrest could be made.
JPD says an additional arrest is imminent for the second suspect involved in the murder.
