GULFPORT, Miss. (AP) -- A mother and daughter have notified court officials of their intent to accept a plea agreement in the armed robbery of a Gulfport bank.
The Sun Herald reports 57-year-old Evie Mearlene Herrin and 30-year-old Amelia Darci Crew have been in custody since March 26, when Gulfport police arrested them minutes after the holdup of a Regions Bank.
The women, who were living in Cleveland, Texas, are accused of taking just over $12,000.
A similar federal indictment in Louisiana alleges the women robbed two other banks.
Court papers don't show if their guilty pleas in Gulfport, set for Oct. 1, will include the Louisiana robberies.
