A spree of violent attacks in Southeast that left five dead and nine others wounded was all triggered when a piece of "costume jewelry" went missing, prosecutors said Tuesday during opening statements in the trial of the men charged in the shootings.
A contract killer for a large drug ring and murder-for-hire operation a decade ago cooperated with prosecutors and became a star witness for the government. But there is a price to be paid for such testimony.
The men responsible for the shooting have already been prosecuted and are among the dozens expected to testify during this trial, Mr. Brittin said.
"His plan was to show up at Jordan Howe's funeral and to shoot and kill as many people as possible," said Mr. Brittin, pointing out Orlando Carter, who wore a white shirt and green tie to court.
