Trial Begins for Man Accused of Deadly Peoria House Fire
The (Peoria) Journal Star (http://bit.ly/1n3OiMR) reports that a jury of seven men and five women were selected Wednesday in the Peoria County trial of 37-year-old Aunterrio Barney of Chicago.
He's charged with first-degree murder and aggravated arson in connection with April 2010 fire that killed sisters 24-year-old Youlandice Simmons, 22-year-old Brianna Simmons and 19-year-old Darresse Roddy. Youlandice Simmon's 2-year-old son died the next day.
Barney fled and federal marshals arrested him two months later in North Carolina.
