Clemons trial put on hold due to scheduling

NATCHEZ, Miss. —  

The murder trial of Davarious Clemons scheduled for this week was postponed because of a scheduling conflict with the court.

Adams County District Attorney Ronnie Harper tells The Natchez Democrat it's not uncommon for the court to schedule multiple cases for the same day, and if one of the cases on the docket moves forward then the others have to be bumped.

In Clemons' case, the trial was delayed because a civil trial before Judge Forrest Johnson started first.

Harper said the case has not yet been rescheduled.

Clemons is accused of fatally shooting 30-year-old Cedric Morgan during a botched robbery.
