YAZOO CITY, Miss. -- A relative has been charged with three counts of murder in the disappearance of a Mississippi family.

Earnest Lee Hargon has been charged with capital murder in the deaths of Michael and Rebecca Hargon and their 4-year old son, James Patrick. The family has been missing since Feb. 14. Earnest Hargon is Michael Hargon's adopted cousin.

A funeral home van was seen leaving the search area for a missing Mississippi family, but authorities aren't saying whether any bodies have been found.

Investigators swarmed over property in rural Covington County Monday, searching for clues in the disappearance of the family. As they did so, a court hearing for Earnest Hargon, who was facing other felony charges, was delayed. He was arrested on drug and firearms possession charges over the weekend.

"Basically, we have had some new developments that have come to light in the last 10 minutes to 15 minutes which are putting the proceedings here on hold temporarily," said Warren Strain, the highway patrol spokesman.

Investigators had completed one search of Earnest Hargon's wooded property near Taylorsville, Miss. It includes a veterinary clinic where his wife works as a veterinarian.

Investigators have also been checking land that Michael Hargon recently inherited from his uncle to determine if there's any link to the disappearance.

Earnest Hargon was being held without bond Monday. Capital murder is punishable by death in Mississippi. :mad:

How very sad. This story has gotten a lot of coverage around here because the wife is originally from this area, Poplar Bluff Missouri, her parents and other relatives still live here but are down there now. The uncle said tonight on the local news that they are making funeral arrangements down there but plan to also hold a memorial service up here for family and friends.
A beautiful family wiped out because of greed and anger!!! The little 4 year old boy was so beautiful. He's with the angels now.

This is so sad. I kept hoping that just maybe they would be found alive. How anybody can kill is beyond me, but especially a child. Prayers for them.

Glancy believes any possible conflict between Earnest Lee and Michael was over Benny Fisher, a longtime family employee at the Madison County farm.
"He was probably closer to him than a brother would be," Glancy says about his stepson.
Fisher and Earnest Lee spent years avoiding Hargon's father, who Glancy claims was a heavy drinker.
"(Hargon) and Benny hid from him. He was abusive."
Glancy says the will demanded that Fisher was cared for.
"What I think is that, I've heard rumors , that Earnest went up there (Hargon home) to talk to Michael about Benny. Benny was not being treated properly. I'm sure there was a confrontation and things just went from bad to worse."

As a newbie here, I would like to point out that due to MS state laws, he gets an automatic appeal. Our news was reporting there is a state law that requires an automatic appeal on any death sentence, not sure how it is elsewhere.

Also, I cant really say much about this, since I was employed by one of the agencies responsible for his imprisonment, and I dealt with him on a one on one basis almost daily, but I can say this.
When he arrived into custody, he was a very thin man, and has gained much weight while in jail. I spoke with him and refuse to believe that he could be so dismissive of the situation. When he would speak to you, it was like he wasnt in jail, hadnt killed anyone, he spoke (deferentially) but pretty much like he was just in a very restrictive gated community.

Im not sure what else I can legally say, and I have probably crossed the line of legality anyway, but if I have, I apologize and feel free to remove any comments that crossed legal lines.
