U.S. Supreme Court gives Jim Hood more time to respond to Willie Manning's appeal
JACKSON, Mississippi -- Mississippi prosecutors now have until Feb. 11 to respond to a death row inmate's ongoing effort to win a new trial for the killing of two university students in 1992.
In an order signed this week, the U.S. Supreme Court granted a request from Mississippi Attorney General Jim Hood for more time. Hood's original deadline was Jan. 10.
On Dec. 3, Willie Jerome Manning asked U.S. Supreme Court to listen to his arguments for a new trial.
