A Lauderdale County murder case against 42-year-old Raymond Clemmons has been sent to a grand jury.

Clemmons is charged with killing his cousin, 50-year-old Jerry Ivy.

Police said Clemmons shot and killed Ivy inside his pickup truck during some sort of ongoing altercation.

Emotions ran high for both sides of the family on Friday as investigators described the night Ivy died.

After hearing testimony from both attorneys, a Lauderdale County judge bound the case over to a grand jury.

The judge said because Clemmons was out on a suspended drug sentence when the shooting took place, his bond has been revoked.

Ivy's family said they want justice to be served.

"We miss our dad a lot. You know, you only get one father and the day that Raymond Clemmons shot my dad and killed him - murdered him - he didn't just take one person's life, he took his whole families'," said Regina Rogers, Ivy's daughter.

The grand jury will decide whether or not there's enough evidence for this case to go to trial.
