Testimony Underway In Third Trial For Woman Accused In Boy's Murder

Testimony got underway Thursday for a woman charged in the death of ten-year-old Christopher Foggs of Ayden.

Foggs was killed after getting caught in gunfire while playing in his front yard in Ayden in April 2005.

A panel of eight women and four men were picked Wednesday to hear the case, along with two alternates.

Vonzeil Adams sat with little emotion as prosecutors were making their case. Prosecutors claim that Adams actions directly led to Foggs death.

Foggs mother testified she had left her son with a relative and learned while in church her son was shot. Loretta Strong testified she heard Adams tell the shooter, Jamal Greene to "Get the gun and shoot." Adams lawyer, David Sutton, says his client is not guilty and she feels bad for the family of Christopher Foggs.

This is the third attempt for a trial for Adams. Adams' attorney was found in contempt of court last time, and a hung jury meant a mistrial the first time Adams was tried.
