Three Die In Plane Crash Near Oxford

Three people died Saturday afternoon after their plane crashed near Oxford. Former trial lawyer Dickie Scruggs had been on that plane just hours before the crash, flying home from a conference in Colorado to Mississippi. Tommy Nix and wife Merline Nix of Belmont, Mississippi, and co-pilot Jarrod Holloway of Booneville, Mississippi, continued on to Alabama’s Marion County-Rankin Fite Airport, officials say. They didn’t make it.
