A Hinds County grand jury has indicted William Ervin Edwards, 55, for first-degree murder in the shooting death of community activist and Better Men Society founder Robert Davis in May.
William Edwards, also known as “Napoleon Edwards” and “Polo” made personal posts on social media that could be connected to the crime. Sources close to the event say a love triangle may have been part of the issue as Davis and Edwards were both reportedly dating the same woman, though an official motive has yet to be revealed.
According to a new report by WLBT, the indictment reveals Edwards’s prior convictions of cocaine possession from 1996 and false pretense in 1997. Both are felony-level crimes.
Edwards remains at the Rankin County Detention Center.See a typo? Report it here.
