MOBILE, Ala. (WALA) - Jury selection began Monday, September 9 for one of the suspects in the killing of Prichard barber shop owner Sam Richardson.
It has been almost two years since Richardson was murdered in his shop.
His family gathered for jury selection in the trial of one of the men accused of killing him.
“It had been a long road, and I'll be glad when they can come to some closure with it, because the family is still tore down behind it. Really, we don't rest or sleep or nothing. We still grieving,” said Joyce Saucier, Richardson’s sister.
Broderick Brown, 21, faced potential jurors who will eventually decide his fate.
Brown was arrested in December 2011 and charged with murder, robbery and theft. He was 19-years-old at the time.
His attorney, William Hughes, would not comment about the proceedings.
There was, however, no shortage of support for Sam Richardson.
“He was like a father to me,” said Richardson’s granddaughter Ashley Richardson. “I want justice to be served, and everyone is here for support to show their support and to show how much we care and miss him.”
"Every day of our lives we have to live with that, because they really don't know what they took from us. They took a jewel; something that can't ever be replaced,” said Richardson’s sister Theresa Whigham.
Attorney Glenn Davidson who is representing Andrew Amison, the second defendant charged in Richardson’s killing, said that Judge Robert Smith granted a continuance motion he filed months ago and he is now waiting for a trial date to be set.
Amison is charged with capital murder.
