Alexis Murphy's Mom Testifies at Murder Trial

May 2, 2014

The jury returned to the Nelson County Courthouse Friday morning for the opening day of the Randy Allen Taylor trial.

This morning, the mother of Alexis Murphy testified.

Prosecution says a shirt with Alexis' blood was found in Taylor's trailer.

In court yesterday, Taylor entered his official plea of not guilty on the first degree murder charge.

Jury selection also got underway and it wasn't easy finding 12-people who hadn't heard of the case.

The defense tried to have the trial moved to another venue, but the judge ruled against it.
