JACKSON, MS (Mississippi News Now) -

A Madison County judge has denied the petition filed by the widow of prominent attorney Mark Mayfield. She was seeking a probable cause hearing on trespassing charges.

Robin Mayfield alleged that when she called 9-1-1 to alert authorities that her husband had taken his own life, three Madison investigators showed up on her property.

The Mayfield residence is in Ridgeland, and she believed the investigators had no jurisdiction to search her home.

Wednesday, Circuit Court Judge John Emfinger denied the petition, stating that any prosecution for trespassing should be done by issuing a citation, not an arrest warrant.
