FILE -  Reputed Ku Klux Klan leader Edgar Ray Killen, is shown in this June 20, 2005 file photograph taken in Philadelphia, Miss. James Stern, a black man who was a cellmate in a Mississippi prison with Killen, says that he gave him power of attorney while in prison and has taken control of 40 acres of Killen's land, with an acre to be set aside for a civil rights memorial at a Thursday, June 14, 2012 news conference in Jackson, Miss. Killen was convicted on June 21, 2005 _ exactly 41 years after Michael Schwerner, James Chaney and Andrew Goodman were killed. (AP Photo/Rogelio V. Solis, File)
