    Accused MS Highway Shooter Faces Death Penalty
James Willie Thomas SchlenderDESOTO COUNTY, MS -- It's been over a year since two people were murdered on Mississippi's highways. It was the case that gripped the Mid-South, and the nation, for weeks as investigators wondered if a serial killer was impersonating a police officer. James Willie will go on trial for the murders next month. Prosecutors are seeking the death penalty. Willie's accused of murdering two people and raping a third victim. If convicted, he could be put to death. Willie faces the death penalty for the murder of 74-year old Thomas Schlender from Nebraska. Schlender was shot and killed last May while driving down Interstate 55. Just days after Schlender's murder, Lori Anne Carswell, a Tunica casino worker, was shot and killed. She was found near her car on Mississippi Highway 713. Willie was arrested for both murders in May 2012. Tunica County sheriff investigators matched a gun Willie's accused of firing during a sexual assault to the murder weapon. - (Black-on-white)
