May 7th Execution Set For Man In 1992 Slayings

Jackson -

The Mississippi Supreme Court has set a May 7 execution date for Willie Jerome Manning, who was convicted of killing two Mississippi State University students two decades ago.
    
The order was issued Thursday. It comes weeks after the U.S. Supreme Court declined to hear an appeal from Manning, who's now 44 years old.
    
He received two death sentences for the slayings of Jon Steckler and Tiffany Miller. Their bodies were discovered in rural Oktibbeha County on Dec. 11, 1992. Each was shot to death, and Miller's car was missing. The vehicle was found the next morning.
    
Prosecutors said Manning was arrested after he tried to sell some items belonging to the victims.
