Long Delayed Murder Trial Begins In George County

After two days, a jury still has not been seated in the long awaited murder trial of a George County man.

Michael Latavian Smith, 22, is charged with killing Joanna Eubanks in August, 2004. Eubanks was shot to death, and her body was found inside Smith's house. 

Jury selection began on Monday. District Attorney Tony Lawrence had hoped to begin opening statements on Tuesday, but that didn't happen.

If convicted Smith could be sentenced to life in prison.
