Jury Selection Begins in Grad Student Murder Case

Jury selection was expected to begin in the murder trial of James Carter II Monday.

Carter, 31, is accused of stabbing his ex-girlfriend, Tiana Notice, to death in Plainville in 2009. She was killed hours after she pleaded with police to help her by enforcing a restraining order keeping Carter from contacting her.

In February, Carter turned down a deal for a 45-year prison sentence in exchange for pleading guilty to murder.

Testimony in the trial is scheduled to begin Oct. 11, according to the Hartford Courant.
