Posted 3:59 pm, December 12, 2019

PANOLA COUNTY, Miss. A Panola County constable was killed in a head-on crash Thursday afternoon, authorities said, and the teens allegedly responsible are facing murder charges.

According to Panola County Sheriff's deputies, law enforcement officers were chasing the teens in a stolen truck when the suspects crashed into another law enforcement officer at Highway 35 South and Highway 6 in Batesville. That officer was killed.



Mississippi Highway Patrol identified the officer who was killed as Constable Raye Hawkins, 57, of Courtland, Mississippi. Hawkins was attempting to join in on the chase when the crash occurred.

The two teenagers were then taken into custody.



The suspects were identified as 16-year-old Darion Dogan and 15-year-old Jonathan Taylor. Champion said both will face felony murder charges and, because of the seriousness of the charges, will be tried as adults.
