Tifton -- The Georgia Bureau of Investigation says that a fifth person is in custody in connection with the September murders of six migrant workers in Tift County.

Emma Powell, a Moultrie native, was arrested last week, and charged with six counts of murder, in what Special Agent Mike Lewis called "the on-going investigation." Powell is being held in the Tift County jail.

Six Hispanic men were killed September 30th in three home invasions in Tift County.

The other five people in custody for robbing and murdering six Hispanic men
are: Stacy Sims age 19, Jamie Underwood age 27 and Jennifer Wilson age 26. All three are from Moultrie.

Twenty-two-year-old Thomas Christopher Mathis of Adel was arrested a few days after the first three suspects were taken into custody.
