A jury trial continues this week for a man accused of murdering a 17-year-old girl in 2012.

Prosecutors allege that Edwin Jermaine Daniels is the man suspected of shooting and killing Kayla Ferrante back in May 2012. He was charged with first degree murder and shooting with intent to kill.

Previous reports from KTUL state that Daniels' trial began Monday afternoon with pre-trial procedures. Jury selection has been taking place with prosecutors finishing their part of the selection process.

Daniels reportedly told police he thought other people were inside the car when he shot through the back of it, fatally wounding Ferrante. He believed Justin "Pud" Render and Kenneth Demarco "Lil Boosie" Ferguson, both alleged members of a rival gang.

Officials stated that the bullet from a high-powered rifle pierced the license plate, went through the car and fatally wounded Ferrante.

Ferrante had graduated a year early from Memorial High School the night before her death.
