Second Trial in 2011 in Murder Set to Start

Bernard Dale Kelly Jr. and Tyrone Leorone McCurdy, both of Greenville, each received one indictment for murder from the Hunt County Grand Jury.

Jury selection is scheduled Monday in the 196th District Court in Kelly’s trial. Kelly has pleaded not guilty.

Last week prosecutors filed a separate aggravated assault with a deadly weapon charge against Kelly.

McCurdy was convicted by a jury last month of one count of murder in connection with the death of Treybbian Leeky Nelson and was sentenced to 50 years in prison.

Officers with the Greenville Police Department responded to a call of shots fired in the 1000 block of Edgar Street on the afternoon of Feb. 8, 2011 where they found Nelson had been shot.
