Jury selection starts in attack on pregnant woman
MOUNT CLEMENS, Mich. (AP) -- Jury selection has started in a Mount Clemens courtroom for two men charged in what police say was a plot to have a pregnant Detroit woman killed because one of the men didn't want another child.
Jamal Rogers and Antonio Mathis, both of Warren, are on trial Tuesday in Macomb County Circuit Court.
They are charged with assault with intent to murder, conspiracy to commit first-degree murder, unlawful imprisonment and conspiracy to commit unlawful imprisonment.
Rogers and Mathis are accused in the May 2012 attack on Latonya Bowman, who was bound, set on fire and shot. Police say Rogers was Bowman's former boyfriend and wanted her dead because he didn't want another child.
Bowman gave birth to a boy days after the attack.
