(WLBT-TV) - The man accused in a murder/abduction Wednesday morning in Hinds County is out on bond and awaiting trial on murder charges. Wright is charged with the December 2012 murder of Cere White Cannon. Her body was found in Panola County on Christmas Eve.

Cannon was Wright's girl friend at the time of her death.

This time, he's accused of abducting his current girl friend, Sharice Latham. The two reportedly had a fight before the murder and abduction. Hinds  County Coroner Sharon Grisham Steward has identified the dead man as 55-year-old Jerry Brent, Latham's uncle.

Brent's body was discovered just before noon in a home at 3087 Flint Young Road, near Utica, by a home health nurse who was checking on Latham's grandmother. The elderly woman wasn't harmed.

A state-wide man hunt is underway for Wright.
