Former MSU Professor Will Await Trial Behind Bars

MONROE CO., Miss. – (WCBI)A former Mississippi State professor, whose murder conviction was overturned, will remain behind bars.

After two delays, Judge Paul Funderburk ruled late Tuesday afternoon that bond for David Parvin would not be granted. The Monroe County Circuit Court Judge also set a November 12th trial date.

Parvin was convicted of killing his wife in 2011. When appealed, the Mississippi Supreme Court overturned the judgement and ordered a new trial. This hearing had to do with his action on June 25th, while in custody at the Monroe County Sheriff’s Department.

Parvin had been granted bail after his case was overturned, but apparently he became irate and there was pushing and scuffling with a deputy.
