UPDATE: Fulgham death penalty case set for May 24 hearing

By The Associated Press

JACKSON — The Mississippi Supreme Court will hear arguments May 24 in Kristi Fulgham’s appeal of her death sentence for her role in the slaying of her estranged husband.

In court documents, her lawyers cited 38 possible errors in her 2006 trial.

Fulgham, now 33, was convicted of capital murder in Oktibbeha County. She is being held at Central Mississippi Correctional Facility in Rankin County. She is one of three women on Mississippi’s death row.

Prosecutors say Joey Fulgham was shot once in the head while he slept in his home in May 2003. They claim Kristi Fulgham wanted money.
