In the first of two sessions of Carroll County Circuit Court Second Judicial District, several people will appear before Circuit Judge Clarence Morgan, III.

Close to a dozen cases have been set on the Carroll County Circuit Court calendar -- ranging from capital murder to conspiracy charges. The spring session of court will begin on May 5.

Starting the session will be the status conference for Demetrius Massey, who faces capital murder charges.

Massey was indicted last week for the capital murder of Katrina Hemphill. Massey pleaded not guilty and will be represented by Kosciusko attorney Richard Carter, III.

He is charged with the December 2012 stabbing death of Hemphill at her home on Carroll County Road 264 in Vaiden. He is currently serving a 13 year sentence in the Mississippi Department of Corrections on burglary convictions.

Jimmy Lee Daniels, Jr. will appear before the judge for a possession of cocaine with intent charge. His attorney in this case will be Bob Laster of Grenada.

Johnathan Burrell faces five counts of uttering forgery, and he will be represented by Ray Baum of Winona.

On that same day five people will face Morgan on charges of conspiracy to take prohibited items into a correctional facility. Facing those charges are Kenny Wayne Meadows, Erica Jade Floyd, Michael Manness, Jessica Manness and Norris Alexander.

Both Meadows and Floyd will be represented by Thomas Powell, a Jackson attorney. Michael Manness and Jessica Manness will be represented by Baum, and Lee Bailey will represent Alexander.

Ending the day was David Harris, who is facing a felony DUI charge.

On May 8, Atavius Horton and Cortavius Webster will appear before Morgan. Both are facing burglary of a dwelling charges. Carter will represent Horton and Baum will represent Webster.
