Southaven drug case going to grand jury


The Associated Press


SOUTHAVEN -- The case against a 20-year-old Memphis man, arrested during an undercover drug bust in Southaven in which another suspect was killed, is going to a DeSoto County grand jury. 


Teon Katchens is charged with conspiracy to commit a felony, possession of a controlled substance with intent to distribute and child abuse. 


The Commercial Appeal reports Katchens was arrested on May 28 during the undercover drug bust that went wrong. 


Investigators say a man identified as Jeremy Vann tried to run over a police officer when the drug deal went awry. Vann was shot and later died at a hospital. Katchens, who was also in the car, was arrested. A 3-year-old boy in the car was not injured.
