STARKVILLE, Miss. (WTVA) - A man accused of manslaughter following a four-car wreck in Starkville will have to wait longer for his day in court.

Jimmy Andrew Sims, 61, was supposed to have his preliminary court date Wednesday.

However, the Starkville Daily News reports that a municipal court judge granted Sims' attorney's request to have the date moved to May 17.

Sims is charged with manslaughter and aggravated assault following a four-car wreck in Starkville last month.

Tonya Graham, 47, of Cedar Bluff, died as a result of her injuries.

Sims is currently out on a $35,000 bond.
