JACKSON, Miss. — A Mississippi grand jury could soon get the case of a man charged with killing a Catholic priest and taking his car for a Disney vacation.
Jeremy Manieri is charged with killing the Rev. Ed Everitt of Hammond, La. Authorities say Everitt was robbed and shot in July at a beach house in Waveland, Miss. Manieri did construction work at the house.
Crosby Parker, a Hancock County prosecutor, says the investigative report is being finalized. He's hopeful it will go to a grand jury in the near future.
Manieri's attorney, Brian Alexander, says he has "serious reservations" about his client getting a fair trial in Mississippi because a political commercial for Attorney General Jim Hood referred to Manieri as a cold-blooded killer.
Alexander filed a complaint with the Mississippi Bar.
