Jury selected to hear murder trial

/

COVINGTON, Ga. - A jury was seated late Monday afternoon to hear the case of a teenager accused in the 2016 murder of a Covington restaurant worker.

Alcovy Judicial Circuit District Attorney Layla Zon, Assistant District Attorney Tabitha Rogers and defense attorney Teri Doepke of the Alcovy Circuit Public Defender’s office spent the morning and early afternoon questioning 48 potential jurors before deciding on the eight women and four men, plus two alternates who will hear the case against Antavian Love.

Love, who was 16 at the time of his arrest, is accused of killing El Charo Restaurant employee Enrique Ramirez Trejo in June of last year and leaving his body in a drainage ditch along Lower River Road.

In addition to three counts of murder, he is charged with armed robbery, aggravated assault, theft by receiving stolen property and possession of a firearm during the commission of a felony.

After being selected and given instructions by Alcovy Judicial Circuit Judge Samuel  Ozburn, the jury was dismissed for the day. The trial will resume Tuesday, April 11, at 9 a.m.
