Jury selection begins for third trial against Jesse Herrera


Murder suspect Jesse Herrera is in court for the third time for the 2009 shooting of Kerry Davis.

The first two trials against Herrera ended in mistrials. The first, in October 2012, ended after a witness made a statement in open court after leaving the stand. The second trial ended in January 2013 after a jury became deadlocked.

Jury selection for the third trial began on Monday.

Kerry Davis was found shot in the chest in an alley at 800 King Street and Evelyn Street in July 2009. Herrera has pleaded not guilty in his murder.
