Update on the Carolyn Temple case

Here is an update on the prosecutions of the three men accused of killing Carolyn Temple.  JJ is tracking these cases.

Gerome Moore

A grand jury indicted Moore for capital murder on February 19, 2015.  Hinds County Circuit Judge Jeff Weill appointed attorney Afraim Sellers as his counsel after Moore was found to be indigent.  The indictment stated Ms. Temple was shot in the chest with a .380 pistol during the commission of a felony.  No trial date has been set for this case.   He is currently in custody at the Hinds County Detention Center with no bond.

Antwain Dukes

A Hinds County grand jury indicted Dukes on February 19 for capital murder in the killing of Carolyn Temple.  It also states she was shot in the chest with a .380 pistol during the commission of a robbery.  Hinds County Circuit Judge Winston Kidd set his trial date for July 20 (although it will be undoubtedly be continued due to discovery and other reasons.).

Dukes was also indicted on October 2, 2014 for armed robbery (with a firearm)  allegedly committed on March 28, 2014. Judge Kidd set his bond at $25,000 and appointed a public defender to represent Dukes. He is represented by attorney Michael Knapp in both cases. His bond was revoked due to the Temple murder. Judge Kidd granted continuances in March and April.  The first one was granted due to defense counsel stating he needed more time to prepare for the case.  The second one was granted after both sides said they needed more time to prepare for trial.  KF note: Judge Kidd, that's two and we are watching.  Hope we don't get to eight. 

Antreal Jones

A Hinds County grand jury indicted him on February 19 for the murder of Carolyn Temple.  The indictment states she was shot with a .380 pistol during the commission of a robbery.  Acting Circuit Court Judge Melvin Priester, Sr. set his trial on July 6, 2015.  Circuit Judge Tomie Green will preside over the trial.  Judge Priester refused to set bond and revoked all other bonds.

Jones was also indicted on October 2, 2014 for armed robbery (firearm) allegedly committed on March 28, 2014.  The indictment states his partners in crime were the same Antwain Dukes and Queashaun Winters.  He is represented by a public defender.  His bond was set at $10,000 but it was revoked after the murder of Ms. Temple.  The case is currently in the discovery phase. The case was continued in February.  Judge Green stated in the continuance order that all charges should be resolved "at one time".  The case was continued until the next term.

I wish we could have public executions, all three deserve to die. The Roman idea of cruxifiction isn't cruel enough for these three little bastards.

So Mrs. Temple's blood is on Judge Kidds and Greens hands. I bet they sleep just fine, with a clear conscious every night too.

Great. These three somehow managed to draw the worst two judges possible.

Thank you for following this, Kingfish. It means a lot to all of us, especially those who knew Carolyn and are friends with Connor McAllister.

Were the perps in this case maybe in the same graduating class with the 'Waffle House' perps? Relatives of each other? Lived on same skreet in same section? Similar rims? I'll bet a nut there's a connection if we dig deep enough.

Trollfest '09

Trollfest '07 was such a success that Jackson Jambalaya will once again host Trollfest '09. Catch this great event which will leave NE Jackson & Fondren in flames. Othor Cain and his band, The Black Power Structure headline the night while Sonjay Poontang returns for an encore performance. Former Frank Melton bodyguard Marcus Wright makes his premier appearance at Trollfest singing "I'm a Sweet Transvestite" from "The Rocky Horror Picture Show." Kamikaze will sing his new hit, “How I sold out to da Man.” Robbie Bell again performs: “Mamas, don't let your babies grow up to be Bells” and “Any friend of Ed Peters is a friend of mine”. After the show, Ms. Bell will autograph copies of her mug shot photos. In a salute to “Dancing with the Stars”, Ms. Bell and Hinds County District Attorney Robert Smith will dance the Wango Tango.

Wrestling returns, except this time it will be a Battle Royal with Othor Cain, Ben Allen, Kim Wade, Haley Fisackerly, Alan Lange, and “Big Cat” Donna Ladd all in the ring at the same time. The Battle Royal will be in a steel cage, no time limit, no referee, and the losers must leave town. Marshand Crisler will be the honorary referee (as it gives him a title without actually having to do anything).

Meet KIM Waaaaaade at the Entergy Tent. For five pesos, Kim will sell you a chance to win a deed to a crack house on Ridgeway Street stuffed in the Howard Industries pinata. Don't worry if the pinata is beaten to shreds, as Mr. Wade has Jose, Emmanuel, and Carlos, all illegal immigrants, available as replacements for the it. Upon leaving the Entergy tent, fig leaves will be available in case Entergy literally takes everything you have as part of its Trollfest ticket price adjustment charge.

Donna Ladd of The Jackson Free Press will give several classes on learning how to write. Smearing, writing without factchecking, and reporting only one side of a story will be covered. A donation to pay their taxes will be accepted and she will be signing copies of their former federal tax liens. Ms. Ladd will give a dramatic reading of her two award-winning essays (They received The Jackson Free Press "Best Of" awards.) "Why everything is always about me" and "Why I cover murders better than anyone else in Jackson".

In the spirit of helping those who are less fortunate, Trollfest '09 adopts a cause for which a portion of the proceeds and donations will be donated: Keeping Frank Melton in his home. The “Keep Frank Melton From Being Homeless” booth will sell chances for five dollars to pin the tail on the jackass. John Reeves has graciously volunteered to be the jackass for this honorable excursion into saving Frank's ass. What's an ass between two friends after all? If Mr. Reeves is unable to um, perform, Speaker Billy McCoy has also volunteered as when the word “jackass” was mentioned he immediately ran as fast as he could to sign up.

In order to help clean up the legal profession, Adam Kilgore of the Mississippi Bar will be giving away free, round-trip plane tickets to the North Pole where they keep their bar complaint forms (which are NOT available online). If you don't want to go to the North Pole, you can enjoy Brant Brantley's (of the Mississippi Commission on Judicial Performance) free guided tours of the quicksand field over by High Street where all complaints against judges disappear. If for some reason you are unable to control yourself, never fear; Judge Houston Patton will operate his jail where no lawyers are needed or allowed as you just sit there for minutes... hours.... months...years until he decides he is tired of you sitting in his jail. Do not think Judge Patton is a bad judge however as he plans to serve free Mad Dog 20/20 to all inmates.

Trollfest '09 is a pet-friendly event as well. Feel free to bring your dog with you and do not worry if your pet gets hungry, as employees of the Jackson Zoo will be on hand to provide some of their animals as food when it gets to be feeding time for your little loved one.

Relax at the Fox News Tent. Since there are only three blonde reporters in Jackson (being blonde is a requirement for working at Fox News), Megan and Kathryn from WAPT and Wendy from WLBT will be on loan to Fox. To gain admittance to the VIP section, bring either your Republican Party ID card or a Rebel Flag. Bringing both and a torn-up Obama yard sign will entitle you to free drinks served by Megan, Wendy, and Kathryn. Get your tickets now. Since this is an event for trolls, no ID is required. Just bring the hate. Bring the family, Trollfest '09 is for EVERYONE!!!

This is definitely a Beaver production.

Trollfest '07

Jackson Jambalaya is the home of Trollfest '07. Catch this great event which promises to leave NE Jackson & Fondren in flames. Sonjay Poontang and his band headline the night with a special steel cage, no time limit "loser must leave town" bout between Alan Lange and "Big Cat"Donna Ladd following afterwards. Kamikaze will perform his new song F*** Bush, he's still a _____. Did I mention there was no referee? Dr. Heddy Matthias and Lori Gregory will face off in the undercard dueling with dangling participles and other um, devices. Robbie Bell will perform Her two latest songs: My Best Friends are in the Media and Mama's, Don't Let Your Babies Grow up to be George Bell. Sid Salter of The Clarion-Ledger will host "Pin the Tail on the Trial Lawyer", sponsored by State Farm.

There will be a hugging booth where in exchange for your young son, Frank Melton will give you a loooong hug. Trollfest will have a dunking booth where Muhammed the terrorist will curse you to Allah as you try to hit a target that will drop him into a vat of pig grease. However, in the true spirit of Separate But Equal, Don Imus and someone from NE Jackson will also sit in the dunking booth for an equal amount of time. Tom Head will give a reading for two hours on why he can't figure out who the hell he is. Cliff Cargill will give lessons with his .80 caliber desert eagle, using Frank Melton photos as targets. Tackleberry will be on hand for an autograph session. KIM Waaaaaade will be passing out free titles and deeds to crackhouses formerly owned by The Wood Street Players.
