JACKSON, Miss. (AP) — A person familiar with the case says a federal grand jury met recently to consider more hate-crime charges in the death of a black man who was run down by a white man.
Three white men have pleaded guilty to federal hate crimes in the death of James Craig Anderson. He was run over in Jackson in 2011.
The driver, Deryl Dedmon, also pleaded guilty to state murder and hate-crime charges. He was sentenced to life in prison.
A person, who spoke on condition of anonymity because the person is not authorized to discuss the case, says the grand jury met in August.
Prosecutors say four other "co-conspirators" were present at Anderson's death. No charges have been filed against them.
The FBI says its investigation continues.
