Jury Selection Underway in Jason Young Murder Trial

In Wake County, jury selection has begun in the Young Murder trial.

Mr. Young is charged with the beating death of his pregnant wife, Michelle Young. The couple's two year old daughter was found at the scene, unharmed.

Per press reports, there is significant evidence of guilt in this one. According to press accounts, Mr. Young's DNA was found in the room with the victim. Survellance video shows him leaving a hotel in Virginia that night by a side exit around midnight. Staff later found the door propped open with a rock-- goodbye alibi.

As usual, of course, the press has only been printing one side of the story. We'll see if there is more to this case as the trial develops.
