Man charged in sex attack to be arraigned

By The Associated Press

JACKSON – A man authorities say is a suspect in the deaths or disappearances of five women will be arraigned Tuesday on charges stemming from a separate case.
Ricky Franklin was indicted last month on charges of forcible rape, sexual battery, kidnapping and aggravated assault. The charges involve the alleged Nov. 7 attack on a 21-year-old Jackson woman at his mobile home in Bolton. He hasn’t been charged in the other cases, which authorities say have stalled because of a lack of evidence.
