Trial set for woman accused of killing USM student

A Forrest County woman accused of murdering a USM student six years ago will go on trial next March in Lamar county.

Jennifer Wardle, 27, of Brooklyn was indicted last November for the May 2002 murder of James Neal May of Vicksburg. The student was found dead in his trailer in Lamar County with a gunshot wound to head.

At first, investigators ruled the shooting a suicide, but Neal's family persuaded authorities to reopen the case in 2006, resulting in Wardle's indictment.

Wardle has been free on bond awaiting trial, which is now scheduled for March before Judge R.I. Pritchard.
