2 charged with murder in staged ATV death

A man and woman involved in a staged ATV death in Yazoo County were charged with murder Friday, authorities said.

John May and Stephanie Ward, 42, have a new appearance Monday in Yazoo County Court.

Ward was arrested Wednesday in Jackson by agents with the Mississippi Bureau of Investigation.

Ward’s bond initially was set at $3 million for being charged in connection with the death of a Brandon man that authorities say was staged to look like an accident.

Authorities charged Ward with conspiracy, hindering prosecution and accessory after the fact of murder in connection with the death of Roger Lee Scruggs, 44.

John May and Larry Cooper faced the same charges. The two were arrested Dec. 22.

Both men were granted a bond of $100,000, authorities said.

Scruggs’ body was found off Wildwood Road in Yazoo County Dec. 2. Investigators believe Scruggs was killed somewhere else and his body was taken to Yazoo County.
