Jury seated to hear LSU students shooting trial

BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) - Fourteen jurors, two of them alternates, have been selected in the case of two Baton Rouge men accused in the December 2007 killing of two LSU graduate students from India.

The Advocate reports opening statements and testimony are set to begin Monday.

Twenty-five-year-old Casey Jermaine Gathers and 24-year-old Michael Jermaine Lewis are charged with two counts of second-degree murder in the slaying of Kiran Kumar Allam and Chandrasekhar Reddy Komma.

Allam and Komma were found dead Dec. 13, 2007, inside an apartment on the north side of LSU's campus.

A third defendant, Devin Jamell Parker, pleaded guilty in June 2011 to armed robbery and accessory charges in the case and agreed to testify against his co-defendants.
