JACKSON, MS (WLBT) - Alabama authorities have agreed to hand over James Cobb Hutto to Mississippi next month.
Hinds County District Attorney Robert Shuler Smith says Hutto will be brought back to the state sometime after November 4th to face capital murder charges in the death of Ethel Simpson of Clinton.
Simpson's body was found on a hog farm in Edwards after she was last seen with Hutto on September 13th.
Alabama is allowing Mississippi to prosecute Hutto before they pursue charges against him for crimes committed there.
