Jury selection to begin in fatal anti-gay Brooklyn beating

"An update to the brutal December 2008 beating death of an Ecuadoran immigrant, José Sucuzhañay, mistakenly believed to be gay."

Rod 2.0 reports:
Jury selection begins on Monday for Keith Phoenix and Hakim Scott, the two ex-cons accused of fatally beating José Sucuzhañay with an aluminum baseball bat and a beer bottle. The Brooklyn district attorney's office offered Scott a plea deal of 18 years in exchange for a guilty plea but Scott rejected the deal and wants his day in court. MORE
