JACKSON, Miss. (AP) - A federal trial has been rescheduled for May for two people charged with laundering money made from dealing drugs.
Patrina Bester Hayes of Paulding and Lornell Von Moore of Louin are charged with conspiring to launder drug proceeds, money laundering and evasion of tax reporting requirements.
The indictment says they used drug money to buy cars, tractor trucks and motorcycles and to make improvements to real estate.
Moore owned LVM Trucking. The indictment says Hayes and Moore took in about $992,000 from the trucking company from Jan. 1, 2008, to December 31, 2009. They allegedly deposited more than $1.7 million in their bank accounts over the same period.
The trial had been scheduled for Nov. 6. They have pleaded not guilty.
