Jury will determine the fate of 15 year old accused of murder

A jury has been seated and opening arguments have been presented in the first degree murder trial of a 15 year old accused of shooting and killing a six year old girl last October.  Little Alazia Alford was gunned down while sitting in the backseat of a car near 14th and Spencer Street in Omaha last fall.   Jordan Goodwin was 14 years old at the time.  Defense attorneys claim the prosecution overcharged Goodwin.  They do admit that Goodwin was the shooter but say he didn’t know Alazia was in the car and her death was not premeditated.  Goodwin is the youngest person ever charged with first degree murder in Douglas County.
