Hattiesburg woman charged in DUI death

HATTIESBURG, Miss. (AP) - A 37-year-old Hattiesburg woman is in the Forrest County Jail charged with driving-under-the-influence/causing death or mutilation.

Police spokesman Eric Proulx says Judy Haynes turned herself in Saturday night to Hattiesburg police after she allegedly ran over a man lying in the street between 9:30 p.m. and 10 p.m.

Forrest County deputy coroner Jonathan Nobles identified the victim as 49-year-old Stanley Easterling of Hattiesburg.

Nobles said after being hit by a vehicle, Easterling was transported to Forrest General Hospital, where he died about 10 p.m.

Nobles said Easterling's body had been sent to Jackson for autopsy to officially determine a cause of death.

It was unclear whether Haynes had an attorney.
