Jury Selection Begins In Simpson County For Murder Trial

Jury selection began Monday in Simpson County for the capital murder trial of a Vancleave man.

Jeremy Martin is accused of killing his father at their home in Vancleave almost two years ago. Martin's attorney asked for the jury to be picked outside of Jackson County because of pre-trial publicity about the case.

The jury from Simpson County is expected to arrive late Monday night in Pascagoula and hear opening statements Tuesday morning.

This is the second time in the last two months a jury from Simpson County has been brought to Jackson County for a capital murder case.
