Atlean Thomas, is accused in the fatal shooting of her boyfriend, Jackson nightclub owner Houston Turnage at 1242 Ferncreek Drive in northeast Jackson Friday morning.
Her attorney is Jackson lawyer Dennis Sweet.
"A transport order was entered to transfer her to county court, so we can go ahead and get a preliminary hearing, and bring out the evidence the state has against her saying that this should be a murder charge," Sweet said.
Walter Mayers, 60, of Jackson is accused of fatally stabbing his roommate Lee Henry Davis on Derrick Street.
A public defender will represent him.
Jeycob England, 20, of Florence is accused of running down a Utah man in the parking lot of Target on I-55 North early Friday.
England is represented by Matthew Eichelberger who says it was an accident.
"There are a lot of broken hearts in this situation, none the least of which is Jacob England," Eichelberger said. "He certainly did not intend any harm to Scotty Ford of this magnitude of this nature. He certainly did not intend to run over Ford. He was attempting to get his friend from the clutches of what appeared to be an angry mob intent on seriously injuring or killing him."
So the two defendants represented by attorneys, Thomas and England have had their cases transferred to county court.
The other defendant is represented by a public defender, and all three defendants are denied bond.
