Jury selection continues in capital murder case

YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio (WKBN) — It has been a month since jury selection got under way in the capital murder case of Aubrey Toney of Youngstown.

Prosecutors said they are hoping to have a panel seated early next week.

Toney is accused in the 2010 shooting death of Thomas Repchic, 74, and the wounding of his wife Jacqueline. Authorities said the couple was driving away from St. Dominic Church on the city’s South Side when the shooting occurred, calling it a case of mistaken identity.

Toney could be sentenced to death if he is convicted.
