TOLEDO, OH (Toledo News Now) -
Opening statements began Tuesday in the much-anticipated Moody Manor murder trial, in which a Toledo toddler was killed.
According to Antwaine Jones' attorney, Larry Dilabbio, the jury consists of nine women and three men, with four alternates. The jury selection concluded late Monday night.
Before the opening statements were made, the jury was taken to visit the scene of the crime at Moody Manor.
Jones and Keshawn Jennings are on trial for the murder of 1-year-old Keondra Hooks back in August 2012. Police say Jones and Jennings opened fire into a Moody Manor apartment hitting and killing 1-year-old Keondra Hooks and seriously injuring her 2-year-old sister, Leondra.
A third man initially charged in the crime will not be going on trial. Last week, James Moore took a plea deal, which requires him to serve as a witness against Jennings and Jones. In exchange for his testimony, Moore will serve three years behind bars.
The prosecution said in their opening statement that they would focus on the defendants and their disregard to life and property, as well as gang violence. The defense stated there was nothing by way of physical evidence in the case, and that Moore is lying in his testimony.
The prosecution's first witness will be called Wednesday morning.
