Jason Young Trial: Jury Selection

Jury selection begins today in the First Degree Murder trial of Jason Young who stands accused of murdering his pregnant wife, Michelle Young, in November, 2006.  The process is expected to take about three to four days with Opening Statements to follow.  WRAL will stream live coverage of the trial on their website.
I have begun to assemble a dedicated page to facilitate following the trial as it progresses.  The page will be updated as necessary.  Click the link below or in the sidebar to access the Michelle Young Case page.

Discussion of the case and trial coverage is being hosted at the original Friction Powered Exchange forum.

Jason Young Arraignment

Jason Young will be arraigned in a Wake County, North Carolina, courtroom today for the 2006 beating death of his pregnant wife, Michelle Young.  Also on the agenda is an evidence hearing regarding a witness sighting of Jason Young at a King, North Carolina convenience store during the early morning hours of November 3, 2006.  Proceedings are scheduled to begin at 2:30.  Local poster, RPD, plans to be at the hearing and post his observations. 

Because of problems at our regular forum, Friction Powered Exchange, I've reopened the alternative forum, Friction Powered Exchange II.  If you haven't already registered there, I would encourage you to do so.  There have been so many problems with FPX lately that I'm not sure we'll be able to rely on it for the duration of the trial.

The original forum appears to be back up and running, although some people still report having trouble accessing the threads. Hopefully, all will be resolved soon. In the meantime, some posters are still using the alternative forum. There are links to both in the sidebar under "Discussion Forum" and in the second paragraph of this blog entry.

Alternative Forum

I don't know what the problem is with FPX, but if it's still down tomorrow, we'll use the alternative forum.
