The Mississippi Supreme Court has lifted a stay on the trial of two men in the slaying of a Forest teenager.
The trial was delayed in April while the Supreme Court considered whether a confession by one of the men would be admitted into evidence.
Newton County Circuit Judge Marcus Gordon had denied a motion to suppress a confession by defendant Adolpho Mann. The supreme court said it had erred in granting the stay.
Mann and Justin Reed are charged with murder in the 2004 shooting death of 17-year-old Corey Wells of Forest. The teenager's body was found in Conehatta. No new trial date has been set.
Another defendant, Archie Murrell, pleaded guilty to manslaughter in 2007 but has not been sentenced.
