Alphin murder trial postponed

Greenville – It will be a little bit longer before testimony begins in a Hunt County murder trial.

The first of what is expected to be two capital murder trials involving a 2008 shooting death has been delayed.

During a Wednesday pretrial hearing for Tracie Danielle Alphin, the start of jury selection was reset from Sept. 27 to Nov. 8.

All-day pretrial hearings will now occur Sept. 30 and Oct. 30. The trial is expected to take two weeks.

The 22-year-old Alphin, of Quinlan, is one of two people indicted in connection with the shooting death in October 2008 of Jason Herrington, also of Quinlan.
