The murder trial of Randall Reed in the alleged June 2011 smothering death of 70-year-old East Ridge resident Jane Stokes began this morning with jury selection.
Reed, 45, is represented by Chrissy Mincy and Gerald Webb. Hamilton County District Attorney Bill Cox and Neal PInkston are prosecuting the case.
Prosecutors allege that Reed smothered Stokes in her 707 Hardin Drive home some days before being caught using her stolen debit cards in the area.
Reed has been in custody since his arrest nearly two years ago.
