SHARKEY COUNTY, MS (Mississippi News Now) -

Authorities say they're back to square one in a double murder investigation in Sharkey County.

According to WABG-TV Sheriff Lindsey Adams says the star witness, Josephine Warren has recanted her version of events in the deaths of Karitha Carroll and her daughter Jamiah.

Carroll and the 3-year-old were found stabbed to death in their Cary home in 2009.

Warren's testimony led to the Grand Jury delivering a no bill for Shawn Waller of Cary and Stephanie Ann Smith of Jackson. Both were originally charged with two counts of capital murder.

Sheriff Adams says he doesn't know why Warren recanted her statement.

Smith and Waller have been released from the Issaquena County jail.

Warren will be taken back to the Hinds County Detention Center where she is serving time for a burglary conviction.
