    [NATL] Tennessee Lawmakers 'Tricked' Into Honoring Ku Klux Klansman

    Lawmakers in Tennessee are crying foul after Republican Rep. Mike Sparks sneaked in a resolution to honor former Ku Klux Klansman Nathan Bedford Forrest with a bust under a different name. The resolution passed unanimously, 94-0, and the bust was installed at the state Capitol before lawmakers realized the mistake.

    The victims were found Saturday afternoon inside a house in Citronelle — a city about 30 miles northwest of Mobile. Police said a four-month-old baby was found alive at the scene. 

    Police told NBC News multiple instruments were used, including a firearm and possibly an ax. 

    Derrick Ryan Dearman, 27, of Leakesville, Mississippi, surrendered himself to the Greene County Sheriff’s Office Saturday and confessed, according to police.
