JACKSON COUNTY, MS (WLOX) -

A Hurley man has been charged with capital murder for the death of Frankie Taylor Fairley. The 59-year-old was found Wednesday stabbed to death in a field near her home on Polktown Road.

A few hours after she was discovered, Scotty Lakeith Street was arrested and charged with the killing.

Fairley went missing Tuesday night when she left her home to make a quick trip to East Central High School. She was driving a gold 2004 Honda Odyssey van, which, according to Jackson County Sheriff Mike Ezell, was used later that night in a strong armed robbery in D'Iberville.

Street has also been charged in that robbery, and could face the death penalty, if convicted of capital murder.

A second suspect is in custody, but has not been charged as of Thursday morning.
