JACKSON COUNTY, MS (WLOX) -

Stephen McGilberry was back in a Jackson County courtroom Thursday as details were made for his resentencing hearing. Now 37 years old, McGilberry was 16 when he murdered four family members with a baseball bat inside his St. Martin home. 

After hearing briefly from both attorneys in the case, Judge Robert Krebbs allowed a brief recess so both sides could agree on a date to move forward. The judge said he'd like to see the case move forward in the next three months. However, the defense attorney said it would take much more time to prepare. He suggested the October term of the court. 

The resentencing hearing was set for November 14th at 9am. It is expected to last about a week.

McGilberry was originally sentenced to death, but that was overturned, as was a subsequent sentence of four life terms without parole. 

The defense attorney said they would bring up psychological issues in the rehearing, along with the effects of Fetal Alcohol Syndrome.
