Jackson, Miss.

The Jackson City Council will meet Monday to set the date for a special election to replace the late Mayor Chokwe Lumumba.

Under state law, the election must be held in 30-45 days after council sets the date.

The 66-year-old Lumumba died Tuesday at St. Dominic's Hospital.

City Council President Charles Tillman is Jackson's acting mayor.
