Trial Begins For Teen Accused In Two Murders

The capital murder trial is underway for the 17 year old girl accused of shooting two convenience store clerks.

Barbara Elaine Jeffery was arrested back in August with co-defendant, 24 year old Roderic Luster.

Prosecutors say the two went on a 5 hour robbery spree in Gladewater and Longview.

Wendy McDonald and Muhammed Ali Khan were both fatally shot.

Jeffery is being tried as an adult.

If convicted she faces life in prison.
