Stanley Cole Indicted


A Hinds County grand jury has indicted former JSU criminal justice student Stanley Cole in the death of JSU accounting major Latasha Norman, 20. Police arrested Cole, 24, last November after he eventually led police to Norman's body 16 days after she went missing on Nov. 13. Police said Cole was a person of interest in the case early on. Investigators found blood and other DNA samples in the trunk of a car traced back to Norman.

The search for Norman gathered considerable attention from the Jackson community last November. JSU canceled classes and held a vigil after police found her body.

Cole has no trial date set.
