On March 27th, 2023, the Oxford Police Department presented its case against Sheldon Timothy Herrington Jr., 22, from Grenada. After a day and a half of testimony, the Grand Jury indicted Herrington on the charge of Capital Murder.

“We would like to thank all the law enforcement agencies and the District Attorney’s Office for their hard work during this investigation,” read a statement fro the Oxford Police Department. “This is still an ongoing investigation. We have not stopped looking for the location of Jimmy ‘Jay’ Lee. If you have any information, please contact the Oxford Police Department at 662-232-2400 or CrimeStoppers at 662-234-8477.

“Our thoughts and prayers are constantly with the Lee family, and we thank them for their constant support.”

Herrington was served this morning by the Lafayette County Sheriff’s Department, officials said.

Herrington is still under his previous bond set by Third Circuit Judicial District Court. Authorities say trial dates and proceedings will be set at a later date.
