ORANGE COUNTY, Fla. - Jury selection has moved into its second day for the trial of two men accused of murder in a 2016 drive-by shooting in Parramore that killed a nonprofit worker and a mother of three.
Lavon Shinn and his co-defendant, Christopher Miller are charged with two counts of second-degree murder in the deaths of Gino Nicolas, 24, and Tanya Skeen, 46.
Police said the victims were innocent bystanders.
A judge has ordered the arrest of a material witness who hasn't shown up to court to testify. Prosecutors said the man ignored subpoenas and voicemails.
"Obviously the state's expending a lot of effort in getting this witness. He has to be important to the state's case," WFTV legal expert Bill Sheaffer said.
Detectives believe the deadly shooting stemmed from a past fight at a downtown nightclub.
