Dedmon Hearing Set for Wednesday


Deryl Dedmon of Brandon pleaded guilty this afternoon to the murder of James Craig Anderson.

A hearing for Deryl Dedmon has been set for this Wednesday. Dedmon is charged with the capital murder of James Craig Anderson in what prosecutors say was a racially-motivated hate crime.

Dedmon has pleaded not guilty.

A statement announcing the hearing did not say what it was about, but a hearing scheduled last month on whether to move the trial out of Hinds County was postponed.
