The trial of Talisha Butler has came to an end with the jury finding Butler guilty of heat of passion manslaughter.
In July 2020, Christopher Johnson was shot and killed behind Boston Fish on Clay Street in front of a number of witnesses allegedly after an altercation with Butler.
First responders could not save Johnson. He bled out on the scene.
In an interview, then Vicksburg Police Chief Milton Moore stated that Butler called 911 to report that she had shot Johnson shortly after the incident occurred. After a conversation with Moore, Butler turned herself into authorities. Butler was subsequently arrested and charged with first degree murder.
