(Panola County, MS) A man who is wanted for two murders in Mississippi has been captured.

In early October, Shanice Latham was kidnapped by 37-year-old Michael Wright of Batesville.

Latham was able to escape.

Police believe Wright shot and killed Latham’s uncle, 55-year-old Jerry Brent. His body was found inside his home in Utica, MS which is just outside Jackson.

Wright is out on bond and awaiting trial for another murder and kidnapping case from December 2012.

In that case, Wright is accused of kidnapping and murdering 39-year-old Cera White Cannon of Jackson.

Her body was found behind an abandoned home in Panola County.

Back in December, Cannon’s sister told News Channel 3 that Cera had restraining orders against Wright at the time of her death.
