HATTIESBURG, Miss. - A capital murder suspect indicted in a 2011 Hattiesburg shooting is indicted on more charges.

Twenty-year-old Drakkar Fleming is charged with capital murder in connection with the 2011, shooting of Edward Leo Cameron at his gun and coin shop.

Now Fleming is also charged for a burglary that was mentioned in testimony during the February capital murder trial of co-defendant, 29-year-old Gerald Taylor.

Taylor was not convicted of the murder charge but was convicted of an accessory after the fact to murder.

Fleming is under indictment for conspiring to commit a residential burglary just before the gun shop owner was killed.
