A Miller County murder case may be placed on a fast track. John Powell of Mexico, Missouri is charged with first-degree murder and armed criminal action in the death of a 55-year old man last September. Powell allegedly beat, tortured, and used a vehicle to drag Mark Johnson after the two had a dispute at a campground near Bagnell Dam. Johnson later died from his injuries. A case review had previously been scheduled for tomorrow (Wednesday.) A request for speedy trial was filed with the court last Friday.
