Valdosta man on trial for murdering two men

Posted: Updated:

A Valdosta man is on trial for murdering two men almost two years ago.

Jurors were selected today for the trial of Donterrius Johnson.

Prosecutors say he robbed Robert Crawford and beat him to death in August 2009.

They say in September of that year, Johnson used brass knuckles to beat and rob Michael McCaskill.

He died the following year from severe head wounds suffered in that attack.

Another defendant, Corey Singleton, pleaded guilty last October to murdering McCaskill and is currently serving a life sentence.
