Murder suspect Immanuel Dewayne Manning's bond was set at a combined $145,000 Wednesday after he appeared before Oktibbeha County Justice Court Judge William Boykin for numerous charges.
Manning was arrested by Pearl police officers March 8 after Christopher Houston, 35, of Linley Lane, was killed in a shooting at University Hills Mobile Home Park the previous day. It is believed a single gunshot killed Houston.
About four hours after the shooting, 42-year-old Manning, aka "Papoose," was arrested while traveling in a 2002 Pontiac Bonneville reported as stolen, Oktibbeha County Sheriff's Department Commander Brett Watson said Wednesday.
An Oktibbeha County Justice Court docket lists Manning's last known address as 3560 Sykes Park Drive, Jackson.
A justice court judge previously set a $75,000 bond for Manning's murder charge on March 10, but Wednesday the suspect appeared before Judge William Boykin for initial appearances on one count each of sale of a controlled substance, child endangerment and receiving stolen property.
Details about the shooting are scarce, and investigators have not released a cause for the incident.
