Latest Sean Taylor Items
A jury has been selected in Miami for the first-degree murder trial of the man accused of pulling the trigger in the 2007 killing of Washington Redskins star safety Sean Taylor.
A jury of 12, plus four alternates, has been selected in Miami for the trial of the alleged shooter in the 2007 killing of Washington Redskins star safety Sean Taylor.
Nearly six years ago, All-Pro safety Sean Taylor was at home nursing an injury instead of taking the field with his Washington Redskins teammates for a road game at Tampa. Unfortunately, a group of young men from southwest Florida apparently didn't know that.
Jury selection is scheduled to start Tuesday for 23-year-old Eric Rivera Jr. Rivera faces life in prison instead of the death penalty because he was only 17 at the time.
It's difficult this time of year to await the NBA draft and not think about University of Maryland star Len Bias, who was taken by the Boston Celtics with the No. 2 pick in the 1986 June draft and was dead two days later. Sadly, Bias played a role in his own death by ingesting drugs. Yet, there's another sports tragedy that stings even more, and that is the killing of Washington Redskins safety Sean Taylor during a break-in at his Florida home in 2007 and the fact that justice is moving agonizingly slow.
Trials for four defendants, charged with first-degree murder in the former Redskins safety's death, have been relentlessly delayed since the first attempt in April 2008. Last year, for instance, a trial date of April 16 became Nov. 5, then April 5 of this year. The latest try is set for August.
The case has been delayed numerous times since Taylor was killed in 2007 during what prosecutors say was a botched robbery at his Miami-area home.
Regret hangs in each of Venjah Hunte's neat cursive words spread over two and a half pages of notebook paper.
When Sean Taylor went full-speed in practice, that included hitting his Washington Redskins teammates like he did opponents in games. But not tight end Chris Cooley, his friend with whom he talked to every day.
