Testimony in courthouse shooting suspect's trial begins Monday in Galveston

GALVESTON - Testimony begins Monday at the Galveston County Justice Center in the capital murder trial of Jefferson County Courthouse shooting suspect, Bartholomew Granger, 42.

KFDM reporter Megan Dillard and photographer Drue Barrilleaux are in Galveston to cover the trial. Watch KFDM News and stay with kfdm.com for updates.

Attorneys picked a jury of nine men and three women last Tuesday. They'll decide the fate of the man charged in the March 14, 2012 shooting outside the Jefferson County Courthouse.

The panel also includes two alternates who are both men.

Investigators say Granger shot and killed 79-year-old Minnie Sebolt last March outside the courthouse.

Several others were shot, including his ex-wife and daughter. Police say Granger also ran over his daughter.

Prosecutors say the attack was in retaliation for their testimony in his sexual assault trial. Judge John Stevens presided over that trial.

Judge Bob Wortham is presiding over the capital murder trial.  It was moved to Galveston because by law jurors can't walk past a crime scene, something they'd be forced to do if the capital murder trial were held in Jefferson County.
