PASCAGOULA -- A Moss Point man is set to enter a plea in the December 2012 home invasion, kidnapping and armed robbery of a woman.

A Jackson County grand jury indicted Quentez Maurice Carson, 21, and Edward Antonio Jones, 22, on one count each of armed robbery, kidnapping and burglary.

Police said the two, armed with a shotgun, forced their way into a home on Slag Road.

The woman managed to make an emergency call about 11 p.m., but couldn't speak. Instead, police said then they could hear the woman in the background screaming, "Don't hurt me; don't kill me."

When officers got there, the woman ran out the front door screaming for help, police said at the time.

Carson and Jones ran out the back door into a wooded area, police said.

Police found Jones hiding under a vehicle. Carson initially escaped but was arrested a short time later.

The two are accused of attempting to steal the woman's shoes, suitcase and a video game system.

Carson is expected to enter a plea in the case as early as Friday. He remains jailed in Jackson County.

Jones it out of jail on bond.
