Oktibbeha murder case heard in Clay: Jackson’s new mayor allowed to withdraw as attorney

July 19, 2013

Chokwe Lumumba, newly-elected mayor of Jackson, was granted a motion Friday in Clay County Circuit Court to withdraw from his post as attorney for Archie Quinn, an Oktibbeha County man accused of capital murder.
For a little over four years Lumumba has represented Quinn, who was scheduled to stand trial Monday in Oktibbeha County for killing one person, shooting another, burglarizing the shooting victim’s home and shooting into a dwelling. Lumumba said because of his mayoral status he would not have been able to represent Quinn during the trial, which has been postponed.
