Stephen Mobley double homicide trial begins
CHATTANOOGA (WDEF) – A double homicide trial is set to begin this week for a 2016 Labor day shooting.
Jury selection happened Tuesday for Stephen Mobley’s trial.
The shooting happened in September of 2016 on Pinewood Avenue. Two people were killed and a third victim survived.
The night after the shooting Mobley posted a video to his personal Facebook page. He said he would turn himself into law enforcement. Mobley went on to say he was innocent.
“Normally there’s two side to every story…I’m about to turn myself in. That’s how **BEEP** gets misconstrued every time. Come man…anyone who knows me **BEEP**…knows I **beep** aint going on a killing spree.”
He faces two counts of attempted first degree murder, two counts of aggravated assault, two counts of first degree murder, and one count of possession of a fire arm during the commission of a dangerous felony.
Mobley was considered armed and dangerous after this shooting. He was added to the TBI’s Top Ten Most Wanted listed. He ended up surrendering without incident.
Jury members who were selected will be sequestered for the trial.
