Murder Trial Jury Selection Set to Begin


Thursday, January 24, 2013

Jury selection is expected to begin Monday in the murder trial of Michael Cardenas and brothers Ismael and Miguel Parra, a trio of alleged Eastside gang members who authorities say killed George Ied as he walked on Punta Gorda Street in October 2010. Ied, a native of Syria, was on his way home from work at Mi Fiesta Liquors on Milpas Street before he was beaten unconscious only a block away from his house. Ied was put on life support until he was pronounced dead a few days later. Dozens of witnesses will likely take the stand during what is expected to be a weeks-long trial in Judge Brian Hill’s courtroom.
