I hadn't thought of this movie in years. It was one of my mother's favorites when I was growing up. The film is based on actual events and if I'm not mistaken, there's also a book or two about it. I grew up in the area and I remember as a kid my mom pointing to out to me the house where the old fortune teller and her sister lived or at least what was left of it.
I found the wikipedia page for the fortune teller, Mayhayley Lancaster. Turns out that wasn't the only famous Georgia murder case she was involved in, there was also the murder of Mary Phagan which was the subject of a late 80's miniseries, The Murder of Mary Phagan.
