Two people were found murdered in Tallahatchie County on Sunday evening. District Attorney John Champion identified one of the victims as former Horn Lake Mayor Nat Baker’s daughter.

Champion says Mandy Wynne Baker, 35, and Roger Dale Murphy Jr., 33, were found dead in a house about 14 miles southwest of Charleston, Mississippi.

Tallahatchie County sheriff’s deputies were called to the scene around 8 p.m. Sunday.

According to Champion, Roger Dale Murphy Jr.’s father was taken into custody and faces charges.

Please keep this family in your thoughts and prayers.
