Arrest Made In 1990 Cold Case

There’s been an arrest in a 28-year-old cold case. The Labor Day 1990 murders of Kathryn Crigler and Betty Jones in Starkville may have been solved with the arrest on Saturday of a Reinzi man. Michael Devaughn, 52, was arrested and charged by the Starkville Police Department with capital murder and sexual battery. He is locked up and being held on a $10 million dollar bond for the murder charge and $1 million on the sexual battery charge. Quite a few folks in Starkville will sleep better tonight because this guy is behind bars.
