STARKVILLE, Miss. (WTVA) - Former Starkville mayoral candidate Johnny Moore has passed away at the age of 58.

He challenged Lynn Spruill in the 2017 Democratic primary and challenged the outcome when he lost to her by a narrow margin.

A special judge ruled last month against him in that challenge.

Welch Funeral Home says it is handling funeral arrangements and may have more about services Friday.
