Late Monday afternoon, prosecutors questioned an investigator with the Mississippi Bureau of Investigation.

They went through a box with several containers of ammunition found in Godbolt’s station wagon.

It was found after a Lincoln County deputy and three members of his estranged wife’s family were shot and killed in May of 2017.
