After dramatic start, murder trial is postponed

The murder trial of Jerome Ellis began yesterday. Ellis was charged with the murder of Roxana Menefee in April 2016. Before the jury could be selected, defense attorney Troy Wilson had a medical episode. The jury was rushed out and court was adjourned for the day. This morning it was announced that Wilson had forgotten to take his thyroid medication, which caused the incident. His doctor wrote that Wilson would not be able to return to court for 30 days. After Wilson returns, the jury selection will start over with new jurors and the trial will be entirely rescheduled.
