We continue to track the Mitchell Johnson trial this morning.  Jury selection is complete and the hearing is underway in Fayetteville.  Monday afternoon, the jury heard opening arguments.  Johnson's defense described Mitchell as a kid with "a dream" for bigger and better things.  It's truly a compelling story that will probably have you scratching your head more than once.  Johnson could spend a maximum of 10 years in prison.  Track the trial with us on kait8.com at this link.
