JACKSON, Mississippi — Mississippi Supreme Court has scheduled oral arguments for May 27 in the appeal of a Moselle man convicted of manslaughter in in 2013 Forrest County.

Thomas Glynn Flynt, now 53, is serving a 15-year sentence for the fatal shooting of 40-year-old Teresa Groover. Flynt was arrested at his auto repair shop April 11, 2009, following the shooting.

Groover died two days later while hospitalized.

In his appeal, Flynt argues there was no eyewitness testimony indicating that he fired the shots and there was no forensic evidence tying him to the death.

Prosecutors say the evidence showed Groover was shot in Flynt's office with Flynt's gun. They say there was no evidence presented that Flynt was being threatened by the woman so a self-defense argument fails.
