A date has been set for the murder case involving Clarksdale mayoral candidate Marco McMillian.

The grand jury will meet in Quitman County on January 27th, to hear the case against Lawrence Reed.

Authorities say McMillian's body was dumped near a levee in February where it was doused with gasoline and set on fire.

Reed has been charged with murder and held without bond since his arrest.

Prosecutors say phone records indicate he and McMillian knew each other before the murder.
