Trial to begin in 14-year-old boy's killing
Documents: Shooting started with dispute between teen girls, ex-boyfriend
JACKSONVILLE, Fla. – A jury has been empaneled and opening statements will be presented Tuesday in the trial of a man accused of shooting and killing a 14-year-old boy in September 2010.
If convicted, Jeremiah Corbett could face the death penalty in the death of Horace James outside Club Menage at 1220 University Blvd.
Two teenage girls were also wounded in the shooting.
James and the girls were not the intended targets. James died at a hospital.
Hundreds of documents in the case show it all started as a dispute between two teenage girls and an ex-boyfriend.
According to police reports, witnesses knew trouble was coming, and someone told James to run right before Corbett (pictured, right) opened the side door of an SUV and started shooting.
When rescuers arrived, they found two teenage girls suffering from minor gunshot wounds and James unresponsive.
All of them were leaving a birthday party at a club called Menage.
