Mount Pleasant Murder Suspect’s Son Accused of Lying to Police

The son of a woman accused of murder is now facing his own charges.

We first told you about the case in April, when Lawrence Howard Jr. was shot to death at Chase Run apartments in Mount Pleasant.

Mary Bigford is on trial for his murder.

But now Mount Pleasant police say Justin Bigford, her son, lied to them while they were investigating the murder.

They talked to Justin the day of the shooting and officers say he gave them a fake cell number for Mary.

He now faces a felony for lying to police.
