Rusk Murder Trial

Testimony began today in Rusk in the capital murder trial of 19-year-old Richard Cobb.

Cobb and another teenager, Beunka Adams, both face the death penalty. They're accused of robbing a convenience store, kidnapping two employees and a customer, then shooting all three with a shotgun.

The crimes happened back in September of 2002. The customer, Kenneth Vandever, died as a result of that shooting, but the two employees survived and helped police catch the suspects.

Beunka Adams remains in the Cherokee county jail, awaiting trial.
