Tommy Chisholm first court (Logan)

Tommy Chisholm was led into Starkville Municipal Court in January 2018 for his initial appearance after being charged with murder.

A Kosciusko man charged with capital murder and aggravated assault in the 2018 shooting death of a Starkville optometrist at her practice at the Walmart Supercenter on Highway 12 is asking to be released from jail due to health concerns.

Court documents show 43-year-old William Thomas "Tommy" Chisholm cited his personal health conditions as a reason to be released as he awaits trial for murdering Dr. Shauna Witt on Jan. 13, 2018.

His next court date is scheduled for May 6.
