    Mr. Mount looks inebriated in his mugshot ; imo.

    Unbelievable. Over a lousy cigarette.

    She spent her final moments warmly asking customers how their Thanksgiving Day went.
    It's a tragedy all around. The suspect had been a firefighter who was hit by a car in 2002 and suffered a traumatic brain injury. Not to lessen his guilt here, but it might partially explain some things.

    From last month:


    Justice Court Judge Albert Fountain kept Mount's bond at $2 million on a first-degree murder charge. He has been locked up since his arrest the morning of the Nov. 27 shooting.

    After the hearing, Cox said the restaurant's surveillance cameras captured a clear image of Mount shooting Brightwell in the right side of the head. He said the footage is "one of the most graphic" and "clear" he's ever seen...

    When Brightwell saw the gun, records say, she ducked behind the counter, but Mount stood up, leaned over the counter and shot her once in the head.
    Preliminary waived; headed to grand jury next.

    It is impossible to comprehend a crime like this. It is completely senseless! The life of a woman taken.... for absolutely nothing at all. I'm so sad for the years she'll miss out on and for her poor family.

    Normally I'm not a proponent of the DP, in this case I think some folks are just to stupid and dangerous to live.

    From June:

    Man accused of Waffle House murder arraigned in Biloxi


    The man accused of shooting Julie Brightwell in Biloxi is one step closer to trial. It has been seven months since Brightwell was shot to death while working as a waitress at a Waffle House. The suspected shooter, Johnny Mount, was arraigned Monday morning. Mount's plea was not guilty.

    Judge Lisa Dodson tried to set a trial date for this November, a year after Brightwell's death. But attorney Davis requested a later date.

    "Judge, I just now started collecting records on Mr. Mount. He does have a history that does take some time to get everything acquired," said Davis in his request.

    Judge Dodson agreed and set the trial date for February 13th.
