Opening statements are expected to get underway today in the trial of the remaining Cady Way murder suspect. Hector Rodriguez rejected a plea deal last week and instead opted for a jury trial.

It took two full days to seat a jury of 12 women and four men.

Rodriguez wore headphones, listening to the interpreter, as attorneys for both side whittled down the jury pool to 12 members and four alternates.

Rodriguez is charged with six counts, including first-degree murder and kidnapping.

Prosecutors said in April 2012, Rodriguez and Jesse Davis shot Winter Park High School students Nick Presha and Jeremy Stewart execution style along the Cady Way Trail and then set their bodies on fire.

Rodriguez is pleading not guilty.

Davis, who took a plea deal, is currently serving two life sentences and is expected to testify at Rodriguez's trial.
