Accused Carroll Co. deputies want trial moved


LEXINGTON, Miss. (AP) — Two Carroll County deputies want the assault case against them moved out of neighboring Holmes County.

Curtis Alford and John Kevin Beck are charged on nine counts each of aggravated assault and shooting into an occupied vehicle, and one count each of obstructing justice, kidnapping and conspiracy. They allegedly removed shell casings and had one alleged victim's vehicle towed from Holmes County to Carroll County.

Holmes County District Attorney Akillie Malone-Oliver tells The Clarion-Ledger ( that the judge will probably rule on the change of venue motion when the February term of court convenes.

She said Friday that she can't talk much about the case with that motion pending.

Defense attorney James Powell has said the charges were overkill, and no crime occurred.
