Two other individuals were previously arrested in connection with Winston’s death, including Williams’ cousin Bryant Williams, 31, and Joshua Perkins, 31, both of Vicksburg. Each was charged with murder and three counts of shooting into an unoccupied vehicle.

Perkins was also charged with possession of a firearm by a convicted felon.

Vicksburg Police Chief Penny Jones said in June the murder stemmed from “gambling gone bad.” Jones also said the suspects were identified in part thanks to social media posts.
