Moody Trial Moved

Circuit Judge Dicky McKenzie has taken steps to keep convicted killer Kenneth Moody at the state penitentiary and away from Perry County. McKenzie has ordered that Moody's next murder trial be held in Sunflower County, where the Parchman prison is located.

The hearing was held in Moody's absence. The trial is scheduled for November 26th. Moody was recently returned to Parchman. He had escaped from the Perry County Jail September 15th, a day before he was scheduled to be tried for the 1995 stabbing death of Michael Lee of Mobile, Alabama.

Moody was captured last Wednesday near Runnelstown. McKenzie said he selected Sunflower County so that Moody could remain at the penitentiary for his trial since he is considered a security risk. Moody is already serving two life sentences at Parchman for two 1995 murders.
