State Supreme Court Refuses to Hear "Valley of the Kings" Appeal

The Mississippi Supreme Court has refused to hear an appeal from an imprisoned former Walthall County religious leader who is trying to regain ownership of a church enclave in that county.  The State's High Court has declined to hear the case involving David Earl King and the "Valley of the Kings" estate.  King is serving a 36-year prison sentence for sexually abusing a 13-year-old boy.  Last May, the Mississippi Court of Appeals upheld a chancellor's 2004 ruling that conveyed the 58-acre compound to King's former wife, Ruth King, who filed for divorce that year.  David Earl King had wanted ownership of the estate transferred to one of his daughters, who, according to the court record, had agreed to return the property to him if he was ever freed from jail.
