Autopsy shows suspect in officers’ deaths had enlarged heart.

HATTIESBURG, Miss. (AP) — An enlarged heart is a likely factor in the death of a 30-year-old inmate jailed since last May in the slayings of two Hattiesburg police officers, authorities said Saturday Forrest County Coroner Butch Benedict said there were no signs of trauma on the body of Marvin Banks, who died Friday after being brought to a hospital from the Forrest County jail. Marvin Banks, 30, was arrested in May alongside his girlfriend, Joanie Calloway, 22, and charged with two counts of capital murder for the fatal shooting of two police officers, Benjamin Deen and Liquori Tate, at a traffic stop in Hattiesburg, Forrest County. Banks was charged with one count of being a felon in possession of a firearm and with grand theft for fleeing in the police cruiser after the shooting.
