Jury selection begins Monday in the capital murder trial of Jamarcus Mahone.
In December of 2014, Mahone was charged with the death of Raven Hamilton.
Hamilton was a Murphy High student. She was riding in a car with friends on Brazier drive. That’s when the car was hit multiple times by gunshots allegedly fired by Mahone. Hamilton was struck in the heart and died shortly after.
Officials with the district attorney’s office say the gunman thought someone else was in the car, which makes sense to Tyrus Booker, who was driving the car. Booker says they were friends with Mahone.
