JACKSON, MS (WLBT) - Lawyers in a high-profile kidnapping and murder case met before Judge Swan Yerger at the Hinds County courthouse Monday morning.
They discussed the ongoing civil suit against Robbie Bell.
She's the mother of George Bell III, who is spending life in prison for murdering his girlfriend, Heather Spencer, back in 2007.
Spencer's roommate at the time of the murder, Elizabeth Hall, filed a civil suit against Robbie Bell last year. Now, Bell and her attorneys want to quash a subpoena for her phone records. Hall was kidnapped by George Bell III after he murdered Spencer. Hall was taken to Robbie Bell's home and believes she could have stopped her son from leaving her home after the murder.
Yerger didn't make a ruling on the issue, though, because the lawyers agreed they still have some preliminary work to do.
