Vickie Nevels doubts the Milford Barnett murder trial will go forward as scheduled on Tuesday in Roane County Criminal Court.
She has good reason to be skeptical.
Barnett, her younger half-brother, is accused of killing their elderly mother, Pearl Barnett. It’s been nearly five years since Pearl Barnett’s death, and Nevels has seen the trial postponed several times.
“It’s been horrible for me these past five years,” she said.
