Charlene Keigi, 61, of Marshall, has been placed under arrest on murder charges, according to information released by the Harrison County Sheriff's Department.

On Sept. 14 at approximately 4 p.m. Harrison County Sheriff’s Office dispatch received a 911 call from a female subject, later identified as Charlene Keigi, stating that her recently separated boyfriend was on the property at 320 Chapparal Ranch Road in Woodlawn. The 911 call was disconnected. Another call was received a short time later from the same caller stating that she had shot him.
