Jurors will be brought in for homicide trial

Posted: Updated:

SPRINGFIELD, Mo. (AP) - A jury will be brought in from outside Greene County to hear the trial of a man accused of kidnapping and killing a 10-year-old Springfield girl.

The trial date for 46-year-old Craig Michael Wood was not set during a hearing Tuesday but attorneys agreed to import a jury. They will now negotiate to choose which county will be used.

Wood is charged with murder, kidnapping, rape, sodomy and armed criminal action in the death of fourth-grader Hailey Owens in February. She was found dead in Wood's basement after witnesses said he forced her into his pickup truck as she walked home. Prosecutors are seeking the death penalty.
