Man goes to trial for murder 4 years ago

A man accused in three separate Valley murders is now going to trial for one of them.

Terry Kelly will face a jury for one of those murders.

In suit and tie, charged with capital murder, now 45 year old Kelly steps from the Madison County Jail to a Madison County Courtroom.

The trial comes nearly four years after his arrest.

"We have like $1,600 of man hours into this investigation."

It's an investigation into the bizarre death of 75-year-old Jack Dempsey, an art professor at UAH, beloved by students and faculty alike.

On October 12, 2003, inside his Meridianville home, Dempsey was found dead with a single bullet to the head.

His red pick up truck, missing.

Within the week, that red pick up wrecked in north Louisiana.

At the accident scene police found 2 suspects, Shonda Moody and Terry Kelly.

Both were eventually charged with Dempsey's murder.

Now 45-months later, one walks toward a courtroom to face a jury.

His fate, mere days away.
