Michele Anderson’s aggravated murder trial, which was set to begin Tuesday, has been postponed for a week. She is accused of fatally shooting six relatives on Christmas Eve 2007 in Carnation.
Opening statements in Michele Anderson’s aggravated first-degree murder trial have been postponed a week.
A 16-member jury was selected Wednesday to hear evidence in the case against Anderson, who is accused of fatally shooting six members of her family in her parents’ rural Carnation home on Christmas Eve 2007. Four jurors are to be randomly chosen as alternates at the close of trial.
Opening statements, originally scheduled for Tuesday, have been postponed until Jan. 25.
Anderson’s former boyfriend, Joseph McEnroe, was convicted in March of the same killings Anderson is accused of committing. The jury in his case did not impose the death penalty and McEnroe is currently serving six life sentences.
