Hearing set for the man accused of killing Mississippi nuns

JACKSON, Miss.- The man charged in the killings of two nuns is scheduled for court on Friday. 

Rodney Earl Sanders, 46, will appear for a court hearing with a chance for his attorney to respond in the Durant municipal Court. Some evidence from the prosecution will be presented.

After this hearing he will go to trial before the grand jury.

Sanders was charged with capitol murder in the stabbing deaths of Sisters Paula Merrill and Margaret Held. Both worked as nurse practitioners.

The women were found stabbed to death on August 25 in the home that they shared in Durant when they failed to show up for work in Lexington.

The sisters families and colleagues said they do not support the death penalty, even for Sanders.
