A Possible Life Saving Hearing

JACKSON, Miss. – It’s been 14 years since Michelle Byrom stood in a Tishomingo County Circuit Court room and was sentenced to execution for killing her husband at their Iuka home.

Tuesday, she returned to the same courthouse, this time, for a hearing that could extend her own life.  Byrom’s procedural hearing is taking place because the Mississippi Supreme Court granted her a new trial.  Earlier this year, Mississippi Attorney General Jim Hood had asked for a death date.  However, the State Supreme court overturned her conviction and ordered a new trial.

Byrom remains in the Tishomingo County jail without bond.
