Murder Trial Date set for Franklin County Woman

A Franklin County Judge has set a May trial date for Mary Zumwalt-Jophlin.

Zumwalt-Jophlin is accused of killing her young daughter in July 2011.

She was arrested hours after the body of Alexus Nicole Smothers was found in the basement of the family’s West Frankfort home.

Zumwalt-Jophlin has been in the Franklin County Jail ever since. That trial is set for May 6.
