No bond given for Pine Bluff man accused of multiple charges including capital murder


By Ray King

As the investigation into a shooting on the parking lot of the Superstop at Pullen and University continues, a suspect accused of firing shots that resulted in the death of one man and injuries to three more made his first appearance in court Friday.

Marquis Latrel Sission, 21, had been the subject of a police search since he was identified during the investigation and surrendered to police on Thursday.

Sission is accused in the death of Vincent Peal, 23, who was pronounced dead at the scene in the early morning hours Sunday.

During the court appearance, Deputy Prosecutor Keith Hall explained the allegations against Sission.

Over the objections of an attorney from the James Law Firm, Pine Bluff District Judge John Kearney ruled prosecutors have probable cause to charge Sission with capital murder, three counts of first-degree battery, discharging a firearm from a vehicle and engaging in criminal gang activity. He was ordered to have no contact with the remaining victims and told to come back to court Dec. 4.
