A northeast Mississippi woman is accused of killing a man in an argument about a repossessed van.

Lillian Cayson of Aberdeen was arrested after the fatal shooting of 39-year-old Moses Daniel and charged with murder.

Aberdeen Assistant Police Chief Quinell Shumpert tells local news outlets that Daniel was behind on the payments for the van.

Shumpert says the 31-year-old Cayson called the business that had sold Daniel the van and told workers where it was hidden.

Shumpert says Cayson and Daniel argued over the van and she shot him on the sidewalk outside Daniel’s house, leaving him to die. Witnesses told police that Cayson was the shooter.

A judge set bail at $150,000 and Cayson remains jailed. It’s unclear if she has a lawyer who could be reached for comment.
