Albany murder trial begins


Rico Jones is on trial in Dougherty County Superior Court, accused of murder in the death of three year old Camyria Arnold in December of 2010.

The nine women and five men picked as jurors heard opening statements and then the trial halted for lunch, to resume about 1:30.

The state says that Jones is responsible for the child's death due to what prosecutors called "total criminal neglect."

Jones' lawyer, Jonnie Graham, said that the state cannot prove it allegations, and that Jones in fact tried to help the child.

WALB's Jim Wallace is covering the trial, and will have more later.
