(UPI) — A former Mississippi legislator active in civic affairs along the Gulf Coast was charged with murder Tuesday in the beating of a young waitress. Thomas Upton Sisson, 58, a prominent Gulfport attorney, was arrested Monday night shortly after Janette Rowelette, 30, died in a hospital. He was expected to be released under $10,000 bond today. Authorities said an autopsy showed Miss Rowlette died from a severe blow on the head, and Dist. Attv. Bill Waller said bruises on her neck indicated she may have been choked as well as beaten. Waller said Sisson waived a preliminary hearing. Authorities said the woman, who worked as a waitress at a nightspot in North Jackson, was rushed to the hospital Monday morning from her apartment. Waller said a taxi driver reported picking the woman and Sisson up at the nightspot Sunday night and taking them to the apartment. Sisson, a familiar figure around the state Capitol, has been active in civic affairs and politics for a number of years. While he was in the legislature, he served on the powerful Ways and Means Committee. Appointed BOSTON (UPI) — The Unitarian Universalist Association has appointed the Rev. George T.
