OXFORD, Miss. (WLBT) - The Institutions of Higher Learning Board of Trustees on Thursday decided to delay voting on the request to relocate the Confederate monuments on the University of Mississippi’s campus.

The statue is expected to move from a central spot on the Oxford campus to a Confederate cemetery, which is also on campus.

The Mississippi Department of Archives and History voted back in December to remove the statue from a central location on the campus.
