Home of slain judge to be demolished

Posted: Updated:

BILOXI, MS (WLBT)- The Biloxi home where a prominent circuit court judge and his wife were murdered is slated to be demolished.

Biloxi authorities plan to tear down the dilapidated structure where Vincent and Margaret Sherry were killed in 1987.

The couple was slain in what is said to have been a conspiracy involving the Dixie Mafia and a scam to bilk money out of inmates at a Louisiana prison.

Kirksey Mccord Nix Jr, the alleged kingpin of the Dixie Mafia, was convicted of ordering the hit. The vacant house was damaged by Hurricane Katrina in 2005.
