Man's murder trial expected to begin today

Opening statements are expected this morning in the murder trial of Timothy L. Humphrey, accused of arranging the murder his former lover.

Attorneys took two days to pick a jury to hear the case. Humphrey could receive the death penalty if found guilty of masterminding the murder of Sandee Rozzo, a former co-worker who had accused him of assault. Prosecutors say Humphrey cooked up a plan for his wife, Ashley Humphrey, to kill Rozzo.

Ashley Humphrey shot Rozzo to death outside the victim's Pinellas Park home on July 5, 2003. Ashley Humphrey, in exchange for a 25-year prison sentence, has agreed to testify against her husband during the trial, which should take at least a week.
