A man long thought to be a prime suspect in the KFC murders in Kilgore, has been removed from all records of suspicion in that case.
A Rusk county judge has ordered Jimmy Mankins' name removed from any records of indictment connected to the case.
Mankins was charged in 1995 in 5 capital murder indictments for the murder of 5 people kindapped from a Kentucky Fried Chicken in Kilgore. The charges were later dropped.
This latest compromise agreement, called an "expongement", was made between prosecutors and Mankins' attorney.
