Two murder trials get underway this week in Hunt County

GREENVILLE - Both the 354th and 196th District Courts will conduct jury selection Monday in the cases of Antonio Derrance Fletcher and Tyrone Leorone McCurdy.

Fletcher has pleaded not guilty in connection to last summer’s death of Javon Newman. His alleged co-actor, Devin Eugene Royal, was convicted and sentenced to life in prison last month.

McCurdy is facing trial in the death of Treybbian Leekey Nelson last spring and has claimed innocence. His alleged co-actor, Bernard Dale Kelly, Jr., is scheduled for trial in August.
