DECATUR, AL (WAFF) -

Testimony is expected to begin Wednesday in a Morgan County capital murder trial.

Darrius Sherrod is charged with capital murder for the shooting death of 19-year-old Matthew Jackson.

The shooting happened in September 2010 in Decatur. Investigators said Sherrod pulled up in a car then began shooting at Jackson.

Sherrod, who was 18 at the time, tried to get youthful offender status, but a judge denied the motion in June 2011.

Jury selection for the trial was completed Tuesday.
