Two men, including a sex offender from Colorado, have been charged with capital murder in the death of a Grenada (Miss.) Police officer who was deploying spike strips when he was struck by their vehicle.
Grenada PD's Capt. John Wayne Haddock was struck and killed on Friday by their vehicle.
Authorities believe the driver was 20-year-old Kyle David Wendt, of Colorado Springs who has a record as a sex offender in that state. The passenger was 40-year-old Thomas Leland Lee, a New Orleans native whose last home address was in West Monroe, La.
The two men were wanted in a church burglary.
