HURLEY, Miss.- A Jackson County man has been charged in the stabbing death of a Hurley woman who went missing Tuesday.
Jackson County Sheriff Mike Ezell told the Sun Herald, Scotty Lakeith Street, 36, has been charged with capital murder in the death of 55-year-old Frankie Taylor Fairley.
Fairley was found Wednesday in a field near her home.
She was last seen by her husband when she asked him to watch a pot of food on the stove until she returned. Fairley was headed to East Central High School.
The van she was driving was used in a strong-arm robbery Tuesday night at a D’Iberville convenience store after Fairley was reported missing. Street also has been charged with robbery.
A second suspect taken into custody Wednesday in connection with the case has not been charged as of Wednesday morning.
Street could face the death penalty in this case.
