Jackson woman allegedly killed over a parking spot honored by candlelight vigil

JACKSON, Miss. (WLBT) - A young Jackson woman who lost her life in a senseless act of violence was remembered Thursday.

Kiana Singleton, 25, was employed at the Choices for Children and Families Healthcare center in south Jackson.

Last month, she was shot to death while sitting in a car after an apparent argument over a parking space near a County Line Bar.

Family members, friends and co-workers gathered in the parking lot of the south Jackson clinic for a candlelight vigil and balloon release.

Dr. Samuel Jones had this to say about his former employee.:

”I got to know Kiana basically as a kid coming out of high school and I realized what an asset she was for this clinic and for the people of south Jackson. A very humble and gentle person. The manner of her, of our losing her, in no way compares with the life that she lived.”

A man and a woman have been arrested in connection with Singleton’s shooting death.
Woman charged in Jackson shooting was out on bond for first-degree murder charges in Clinton
JACKSON, Miss. (WLBT) - A woman charged with murder in connection with a January shooting on I-220 was already facing a first-degree murder charge in Hinds County Circuit Court.

On Tuesday, Jackson Municipal Court Judge Jeffrey Reynolds set bond at $1.25 million for 24-year-old Augena Funches and remanded her over to the Hinds County grand jury.

She is facing charges of murder, drive-by shooting and recovery of stolen property.

Marcus Lamonte Guice has also been charged with murder in the shooting.

The charges stem from a Jan. 24 shooting in the Ridgewood Court area that city prosecutors say began as an argument at the M-Bar Sports Grill.

Authorities say surveillance showed a woman in a black Range Rover getting into an interaction with two other individuals in a parking lot at the Ridgewood Court sports bar.

The incident occurred just before 3 a.m.

Video showed that as the first car left the M-Bar parking lot, the Range Rover followed, and a passenger in the Range Rover opened fire along Ridgewood Court.

Witnesses identified the shooter as Funches, who also later admitted to firing the shots, authorities told the court.

Police found the victim, Kiana Singleton, 25, fatally wounded in the 2100 block of Wandering Way.

Funches also faces a previous murder charge.

Marcus Guice, 44, was arrested Monday and has been charged with one count of murder and one count of drive-by shooting.
