        Abbeville to get package store

        Folks living in Abbeville who want to buy a bottle of wine to have with dinner, or some brandy to help keep them warm during the long, cold winter nights, will no longer have to drive 12 miles out of their way.

        Lafayette County resident Will Matthews and New Albany resident Chandler Rogers have teamed up to open the Riverfront Wine and Spirits package store at 1040 Highway 7 North in Abbeville.

        Matthews and Rogers said they chose the location because of its convenience for those citizens living in northern Lafayette County and southern Marshall County.

        They received a permit from the Department of Revenue last week that allows them to open the package store in the city limits of Abbeville. (November 15, 2010, Page 1A)

                New trial in Bracey case

                The Mississippi Supreme Court has overturned  the conviction of a former University of Mississippi student who was sentenced to life in prison for killing his girl friend in 2005.

                David Jackson Williams was convicted in 2007 of killing Demetria Bracey, also a former Ole Miss student, with a knife and leaving her body in a closet for four days. Williams claimed Bracey stabbed herself as part of a suicide pact, however, he failed to go through with the act himself.

                The Supreme Court ordered a new trial for  Williams in a 5-4 decision Wednesday. The court ruled the trial judge, Circuit Court Judge Andrew Howorth, erred by refusing to give the jury the option of finding Williams guilty of assisted suicide. (November 10, 2010, Page 1)
