ROSWELL | NTSB releases report on 2010 plane crash that killed Ga. couple

JACKSON, Miss. -- A 2010 plane crash that killed a Georgia couple in north Mississippi was probably caused by the pilot flying into known bad weather and the air traffic controller's failure to provide precipitation information.

The National Transportation Safety Board released its probable cause report Monday in the crash that killed Jim Judson Jr. and his wife Elizabeth.

The report says "increased or extreme thunderstorms" crossed the plane's path. An ATC conversation indicated Judson was trying to get ahead of severe weather he knew was coming.

The Judsons were heading home to Roswell from Olive Branch, Miss. on Oct. 26, 2010 after watching their daughter, a University of Southern Mississippi student, participate in a golf tournament in nearby Memphis, Tenn. The plane went down near Rienzi, Miss.
