Nephew kills Parchman prison warden at family gathering


The Associated Press



LEXINGTON -- A prison system warden was shot and killed by her nephew at a family gathering in Holmes County. 


Sheriff Willie March tells WLBT-TV Fay Ann Noel was struck in the chest with a 20-gauge shotgun. 


Witnesses say that her 25-year-old nephew, Kenneth Lee Williams, fired the shot that killed the 58-year-old. 


March says Williams fled the scene, but was later arrested at the hospital when he was brought there by a relative for treatment. 


Williams is charged with murder. 


March says Noel worked for the state Department of Corrections for about 25 years. Department records list her as a warden at the Mississippi State Penitentiary at Parchman.
