JACKSON COUNTY, MS (WLOX) -

An initial court hearing for a Hurley man accused of stabbing his neighbor to death ended in tears Friday afternoon. The courtroom started off quiet as Jackson County Judge T. Larry Wilson denied bond for Scotty Street.

The 36-year-old capital murder suspect remained calm as he listened to the charge against him and told the judge he worked off and on and did not have an attorney.

Street was arrested earlier this week for the fatal stabbing of Frankie Fairley. The Hurley woman went missing Tuesday afternoon. Her body was found the following day in a field not far from her home.

Right after the hearing, Street's mother collapsed in court and broke down in tears. She was taken to the hospital to be checked out.

Several family members told WLOX News they are shocked and heartbroken over the case.

Street remains in the Jackson County Adult Detention Center without bond. His preliminary hearing is set for Jan. 12.

Investigators said a second man was in custody, but he has been cleared of any involvement in this case.

Street is also charged with strong armed robbery in D'Iberville. He is accused of using Fairley's van to rob a convenience store in the city Tuesday night.

    Full-time Waveland city workers, primarily police officers, who take-home vehicles outside of the city limits could see a change to the city's policy soon. City leaders said the current policy is antiquated and needs to be rewritten into something that would benefit both the officers and the taxpayers.
