City Hall Murder Trial

July 9, 2003 - Posted at 7:10 a.m. CDT

Little Rock, Ark.  -- A murder trial is expected to continue today for a teenager charged in the shooting of another at a party last year at Wrightsville City Hall. Seventeen-year-old Jermaine Hadley is charged with first-degree murder in the fatal shooting of 16-year-old Randy Bonds of Wrightsville in September.

The city hall had been rented out for the party. Authorities said the youth was shot as he tried to stop a group of men who attacked one of his friends.

Yesterday, witnesses told a Pulaski County jury that a rap song played at the party inspired people to flash gang signs, and a fight started. The state rested its case yesterday, and the defense was to argue its case today. If convicted, Hadley faces 30 years to life in prison.
