November 26-- A mental evaluation has been granted for the man who is accused of killing a Vidalia woman earlier this month.
Middle Judicial Circuit District Attorney Hayward Altman says the public defender requested the evaluation for 23-year-old James Knight of Lyons.
He was arrested for the shooting death of 66-year-old Gladys Bailey at her home on Glaze Drive in Vidalia November 15.
Superior Court Judge Kathy Palmer referred Knight to Georgia Regional Hospital for evaluation. Meanwhile, he is being held without bond at the Toombs County Detention Center.
