SEATTLE (AP) — Seven years after six family members were killed in Carnation on Christmas Eve, a King County judge is nearly ready to begin hearing the case against one of the two people charged with six counts of aggravated first-degree murder.

The Seattle Times reports a jury has been chosen in the case against Joseph McEnroe, which is scheduled to begin with opening statements on Jan. 12.

McEnroe and his former girlfriend, Michele Anderson, are each charged with six counts of aggravated first-degree murder in connection with the Dec. 24, 2007, shooting deaths of Anderson’s parents, brother, sister-in-law, 5-year-old niece and 3-year-old nephew.

King County Superior Court Judge Jeffrey Ramsdell said in court earlier this week that jury selection has been a rigorous, grueling process.

    looks like the courts are all screwed up . why the wait on this case ? hell if the bitch could find a real good lawyer she could get off , because of the long wait , it is just knowing how to use words and how to say what you want to get off , and as for the boy friend he can also get off . but how can it be former boy friend / girlfriend ? you mean that they broke up while waiting for what .

    Pretty sure the jury selection process didn’t take 7 years! Put these animals down ASAP. We shouldn’t have to share this planet’s limited resources with the likes of these 2.
