A jury Wednesday convicted a Jackson County man of capital murder in Dec. 9, 2014, killing of a retired special education teacher, according to Sun Herald news partners, WXXV Fox25. Scotty LaKeith Street, 39, robbed and stabbed 55-year-old Frankie Fairley 37 times and left her for dead in a field about a half mile from her Polktown Road home. A day later, her friends found her body and alerted Jackson County investigators. The sentencing phase of the trial is expected to begin Wednesday afternoon.
District Attorney Tony Lawrence could have gone after a death sentence for the former Navy sailor who brutally murdered a transgender woman, but he feared the evidence wasn’t strong enough to convince a jury of the man’s guilt on the charge. Dwanya Hickerson, 23, pleaded guilty last week to second-degree murder and robbery of transgender nurse Dee Whigham of Hattiesburg. Hickerson admitted to stabbing Whigham 190 times in a hotel room in St. Martin on July 23, 2016.
A retired Lucedale special education teacher was robbed and stabbed 37 times before she was left to die in a field less than half a mile from her home, according to a Jackson County prosecutor. That and other allegations in the the Dec. 9, 2014, slaying of Frankie Fairley, 55, came out Tuesday during opening arguments in the capital murder trail of Scotty LaKeith Street. If convicted, Street, 39, is facing a maximum sentence of death or life without parole.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used.) For example, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
