Gallman, Mississippi (CNN) — A mother, stepfather and 7-year-old boy missing in Mississippi have been found dead, a sheriff said Tuesday.

The bodies of Atira Hill, Laterry Smith and Jaidon Hill, 7, were found overnight in a wooded area, said Copiah County Sheriff Harold Jones. They had been shot to death.

The family was last seen Friday traveling in a car. That vehicle was later found flipped and on fire.

Authorities have arrested 42-year-old Timothy Burns on suspicion of arson, Jones said. He is also being held for \”investigative purposes\” in connection to the killings, according to the sheriff.
