    Julius Kal Smith, 35, is placed in handcuffs after a stakeout by Sharkey County Sheriff's deputies, Anguilla police and the Mississippi Bureau of Investigation.

    A Christmas stakeout in Sharkey County led to the arrest of three men wanted in a slaying in Texas.

    Sheriff Lindsey Adams tells the Vicksburg Post that the three men were arrested without incident about 11 p.m. Christmas.

    They are being held in the Issaquena County jail for Texas authorities. Adams says they had waived extradition.

    Adams says the security system of a stolen vehicle led authorities to the Anguilla home of a relative of two of the men.

    Adams says the three were wanted in the Dec. 20 robbery and shooting death of 21-year-old Trevor Matthew Kronbach at his Lewisville home.

    Adams said his deputies, Anguilla police and the Mississippi Bureau of Investigation participated in the stakeout. He said at 11 p.m. officers tossed flash grenade into the house and arrested the three in a bedroom.

    Those arrested were Tyron Negal Jenkins, 41; George Walker Jr., 33 (pictured left); and Julius Kal Smith, 35 (pictured above).

    Lewisville police Capt. Kevin Deaver told the newspaper that the three men are believed to be from Lawrence, Kan.

    Deaver said a fourth suspect was arrested shortly after the slaying at a local motel. He said Markell Oneil Hardy, 26, (pictured left) is charged with capital murder and is being held in the Denton County Jail pending the posting of a $250,000 bond.

    Jenkins, Smith and Walker will also be charged with capital murder when they are returned to Texas, said Deaver.

    "It was basically a robbery gone bad," Deaver said.
