3 Arrests Made For 2011 Cemetery Vandalism

MISSISSIPPI (AP) - Three people have been arrested this week in a cemetery vandalism case that dates back to 2011.

Union County Sheriff Jimmy Edwards says 21-year-old Marc Hall of Myrtle and 20-year-old Christopher Wood of Tupelo are each charged with felony malicious mischief and conspiracy to commit a crime. If convicted, they each face a maximum sentence of 10 years in prison and restitution.

They're accused of vandalism at the Union Hill Cemetery in the Pooleville Community. The cemetery is owned and operated by Union Hill United Methodist Church.

Church members tell WTVA-TV in Tupelo (http://bit.ly/1sA0Bqz ) gravestones were overturned and flower vases broken.

Some family members say they spent hundreds of dollars to restore the tombstones.
