Aurora, Colo. (AP) Jury selection is again under way in Arapahoe County in a trial stemming from the 2005 shootings deaths of two people, one of whom authorities say witnessed an earlier slaying.
Prosecutors said Thursday the trial of 23-year-old Robert ray is scheduled to begin April 8.
Jury selection originally began in the fall but abruptly ended, with prosecutors saying only that “witness issues” delayed the process. It restarted this week at the county courthouse in Centennial.
Ray is accused of masterminding the deaths of Javad Marshall-Fields and Marshall-Fields’ Fianc Dee, Vivian Wolfe, on an Aurora street. At the time of his death, Marshall-Fields was scheduled to testify against ray in a 2004 slaying at a suburban Aurora park.
A jury last year convicted ray’s friend Sir Mario Owens of killing the couple. Owens has been sentenced to death.
