Subject: Three Jamaicans in Triple-slaying in Rochester, NY: Trial set to
More than three years after the execution-style slayings of three men in a Greece apartment, the men accused of the killings are scheduled to face trial in U.S. District Court in Rochester.
Jury selection in the trial of Richard Emanuel Anderson, 49, Andrew Wright, 43, and Aston Johnson, 41, is scheduled to begin Monday in a trial expected to last two months or more. More than 100 prospective jurors have been summoned.
The sweeping investigation, led by the Greece Police Department, took investigators across the country. The three men — all of them Jamaicans living in the country illegally — were arrested in Arizona in March 2010 in a house with 229 pounds of marijuana.
The three are accused of killing Robert Moncriffe, 29, Christopher Green, 40, and Mark Wisdom, 38, on March 9, 2010 in what was then Holyoke Park Apartments. The accused have pleaded not guilty.
One victim was found shot in the head with his hands, ankles and mouth bound with duct tape. Another was shot in the back, neck and head. The third was shot in the shoulder and chest.
A separate firearm was used in each shooting, police reports show.
