JACKSON, Miss. (WJTV) — A judge denied bond for a man accused of killing two women in a Metro area crime spree.

22-year-old Zebulum James was arrested on the night of November 19 after he allegedly shot and killed two women and committed other crimes in the Metro.

He appeared in court Thursday and received no bond.

The Jackson State University student is facing charges for murder, traffic tickets, and shooting into an occupied dwelling.

Police said 48-year-old Suzanne Hogan was shot in the head at the Shell gas station on Watkins Drive. She died at the scene. Hogan was from New York.

The other victim, 49-year-old Kristy Lynn Mitchell, was shot at the Logan’s Restaurant on East County Line Road. She was taken to the hospital where she later died. Mitchell was in the area on a business trip from Missouri.

A man from Memphis, Tenn. who was staying at the Drury Inn also was injured. He was allegedly hit by the blue Ford Mustang that James was driving.   He suffered a broken leg, officers said.

There were other crimes that happened in Jackson that night that officers are investigating that are possibly linked to James.
