JONES CO., Miss – Jury selection is underway for the second trial of Justin Blakeney, a man accused of murdering a 2-year-old in Jones County.

Blakeney was charged with capital murder in 2010 for the crime. The first trial was dismissed for mistrial for lack of jurors.

Now, Circuit Judge Billy Joe Landrum has decided to hold jury selection in Greene County. Five hundred citizens have been placed on a list of prospective jurors for the case, which should begin July 7th.
