The docket is set for the upcoming July term of Alcorn County Circuit Court.

The term is set to begin July 22 and will continue through the week of Aug. 12. The court also has plea and revocation days scheduled on July 16 and 17.

Among those on the docket is Demarlen O. Davis, accused of murder and possession of a firearm by a convicted felon in the March 26 shooting death of Karson Stewart, 22, of Sawyer Road. The shooting happened on Martin Luther King Drive as Stewart sat in a vehicle in front of a vacant residence. Davis was standing next to the vehicle when officers arrived.

Stewart was shot in the face with a .32-caliber weapon. Police believe Stewart was seated in the passenger seat when the shooting occurred.

The docket includes a child pornography case in which Patrick Goad is charged with seven counts of possession of the illegal materials. The sheriff’s department made the arrest in June 2012 after receiving information that Goad was possibly downloading the materials and after his computer was analyzed.

Herman Lee Shook, a Prentiss County man accused of firing a gun outside the Malco theater in Corinth in March, is on the docket for aggravated assault. In a domestic argument in the parking lot, Shook fired a round that ricocheted off a vehicle.

Candice McCollum appears on the docket for armed robbery and possession of a firearm by a convicted felon. In April, she and her brother were arrested for gaining entry to an East Third Street residence and demanding a man’s medication while pointing his own gun at him.

About 250 defendants are listed on the July-August docket.
