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)
