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.
