CANTON, Ohio (News Talk 1480 WHBC) – Trial took up Monday morning in the July 2020 shooting death of 1-year-old Ace Lucas.
24-year-old Trejuan Johnson is charged with murder in the case.
Jury selection took place, opening statements and a few witnesses were heard.
Police say he is one of three men seen running around the outside of the Lucas home on Clarendon Avenue SW where the crime occurred.
One or more of the men fired a weapon from the exterior of the house.
Lucas’s 29-year-old father Aaron was shot dead last month, just a few days before he was to testify in the initial trial.
The trial had to be delayed until now.
Another man is jailed in connection with that killing.
