Carla Hughes Verdict

The jury is still sequestered in the Carla Hughes double capital murder trial in Canton. Carla Hughes was accused of the 2006 murder of Avis Banks of Ridgeland. 

Jurors asked the judge today if they could have Carla Hughes called to the stand; and of course, the Judge said no, and that they should refer to their jury instructions.  Carla Hughes has stated that she would not testify in her own case.

The trial was concluded Monday evening, and both sides had strong arguments.

Prosecutors said that the evidence points towards only one person…Carla Hughes.  Banks blood was found on shoes that were taken from Hughes home, and Hughes gun matched bullets found at the murder scene.

The defense attorney’s shifted the blame from Hughes and onto another suspect, Keon Pittman. Keon Pittman was engaged to Avis Banks and the couple worked together at Chastain Middle school. 

If Hughes is found guilty, she could face life in prison or the death penalty.
