Clarence “Koko” Lowe has been sentenced for the 2020 murder of Karl Michael Singleton.

On Thursday, Lowe pleaded guilty and was sentenced to 40 years in prison by Judge Toni Terrett. He must serve every day of that sentence under Mississippi Law.

“We hope the plea brings a little comfort to the family because we can tell that he was deeply loved and we hope they can bring to heal from this,” Warren County District Attorney Ricky Smith said.

On Oct. 19, 2020, at about 5:40 p.m., Singleton was shot on Enchanted Drive in Vicksburg. He succumbed to his injuries a short time later at Merit Health, River Region.

Lowe was arrested in the Delta area of Mississippi by U.S. Marshals in 2021 and soon transported back to Vicksburg where he was denied a bond.

A press conference was also held by the Vicksburg Police Department after Lowe’s arrest.

Lowe will be in the custody of the Mississippi Department of Corrections where he will remain at least until the year 2062 due to time served.

“I would like to thank Chief Penny Jones, Detective Troy Kimble and Mississippi Bureau of Investigation,” Singleton’s mother Toni Graves said. “My family will have a little peace since the case has been solved.”
