CLINTON, MS (WLBT) - James Hutto is in an Alabama jail, charged with attempted murder and robbery, and Ethel Simpson of Clinton is still missing.

Simpson disappeared Monday night. She was last seen leaving the River Walk Casino, in Vicksburg, with Hutto.

Lee County, Alabama, sheriff's deputies and Auburn Police Officers arrested Hutto Friday morning just east of the intersection of Alabama Highway 51 and U-S Highway 80. He was driving Ethel Simpson's car.

Hutto is charged with attempted murder in connection with a knife attack early Friday. Mark Cox is in UAB Hospital, in serious condition, with multiple stab wounds.

Birmingham Police suspect that Hutto may also be involved in the death of a Birmingham woman. She was discovered in her home Thursday morning, and is a relative of Hutto.

Clinton Police investigators are heading to Lee County, Alabama, to talk to Hutto.
