David J. Williams out on bond

David Jackson Williams, 28, is at home in Olive Branch with family after posting a $100,000 bond at about 2 p.m. Wednesday afternoon. He was convicted in 2008 in the stabbing death of Demetria Bracey of Jackson three years before. The Supreme Court granted him a new trial in December ruling that the trial judge erred by not giving the jury the option of finding Williams guilty of assisted suicide. Since the conviction was overturned, the presumption of innocence returns to Williams and was granted bond. A new trial date has been set for Oct. 17. (March 23, 2011, Page 1)

          Legislators need to work this conflict out

          There’s a new “R” word being thrown around that has folks up in arms – “redistricting.” State legislators cannot agree on new district lines for the state House and Senate, and now it appears some members of the House will be joining a lawsuit that could involve the Senate. Editor Don Whitten notes that legislators need to work this one out – and soon – or voters will take care of the problem in one or two upcoming elections. (March 23, 2011, Page 4)
