Moody Sentenced To Life In Prison

A Harrison County jury couldn't unanimously decide on the death penalty, so a Perry County man will spend the rest of his life in prison without parole.

The jury deliberated four hours Thursday before sentencing 27-year-old Kenneth Moody. The jury found Moody guilty of killing two Hattiesburg residents in 1995.

Police found the bodies of William Hatcher and Robbie Bond in a shallow grave behind Moody's mobile home in rural Perry County. The trial was moved to Biloxi because of pre-trial publicity.
