The jury selection in the case of an alleged Jones County child killer is ongoing.
Monday was the first day of jury selection in a case that has taken three years to make it to trial. Prosecutors say Justin Blakeney hoped to gain membership to the Aryan Nation Gang by allegedly killing his then-girlfriend's two-year-old daughter. The trial was set to begin on Monday; however, the jury selection process has taken all day.
Justin Blakeney awaits trial on capital murder charges in the August 2010 death of two-year-old Victoria Viner. She died at a Jackson hospital as a result of blunt force trauma to the head.
