Juries will be chosen for two murder trials. Once the juries are selected, Shameik Spinks, 18, will be tried on two counts of felony murder and multiple other charges. Spinks allegedly shot Danavan Bussey in the face with a shotgun during a Dec. 5, 2010 home invasion. Spinks could have faced the death penalty but he was only 17 at the time of the killing.
