A 9:00 AM, February 22, 2016 trial date has been set for accused murderer Cameron Mays, a source who was at Tuesday’s hearing told Lincoln Parish News Online (LPNO). There will be a December 15, 2015, 9:00 AM hearing in the case for attorneys to file any supplementary motions, the source said.
Mays is charged with Second Degree Murder in the June, 2012 home invasion and killing of retired Grambling State University Professor Sue Hashway.
Also, the issue of closed court has been resolved, Lincoln Parish Sheriff (LPSO) Mike Stone told LPNO yesterday.
He said that the public would be fully accommodated in the courtroom, within the limitations of the room’s seating capacity. Baliff’s would no longer selectively bar the public from the court based on whether or not the individuals had business before the court.
Stone agreed that court sessions should be open to all, and that the court’s business is the public’s business.
