Etowah Murder Trial Jury Nearly Seated

Final jury selection will be this week in the trial of the Etowah County grandmother charged with making her granddaughter run for punishment until she died. Opening arguments will begin as soon as the jury is seated. The prosecution says Joyce Garrard was a drill sergeant from hell who kept her granddaughter running until she collapsed. But the defense says his client’s granddaughter died tragically from a medical problem.
