Mel Cheatham

Does anyone know any details about the "Mel Cheatham Affair". It's my understanding that Mel Cheatham murdered a black man in Grenada Co. and that he was the first white man executed in Mississippi for killing a black man. I am trying to confirm that Mel Cheatham was Melvin Cheatham, listed as a Grocer in the 1880 Grenada Co. census. I'm also trying to find out if he had any children. Thanks - Bill Cheatham
