OXFORD, Miss. (WLBT) - The Institutions of Higher Learning Board of Trustees Thursday decided to delay voting on the request to relocate a Confederate monument on the University of Mississippi campus.

The statue is expected to move from a central spot on the Oxford campus to a Confederate cemetery, which is also on campus.

The Mississippi Department of Archives and History voted back in December to remove the statue from a central location on the campus.
