A Randolph County man accused of killing four members of the Elliott Family in 1998 now has his capital murder retrial date set for May.  Billy Dale Green's retrial will begin May 5th or 6th according to prosecutor Henry Boyce.  Green was convicted on four counts of capital murder and one count of kidnapping before the state supreme court overturned the conviction.

Families are raising money for the 216th Military Police Company attached to the 39th Infantry Brigade to help pay for a send-off party before they are deployed to Iraq.  The family readiness group is hosting a rummage sale this Friday and Saturday from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the National Guard Armory in West Memphis.  The group is planning to host a BBQ luncheon for the unit before they are taken back to Camp Shelby for final preparations.
