CHARLOTTE, N.C. (FOX 46 CHARLOTTE) - A judge will allow the jury to see the video confession of accused killer Rayquan Borum in the trial of a murder that happened more than two years ago during the Charlotte riots.
Rayquan Borum is charged with killing Justin Carr near the Omni Charlotte Hotel during the 2016 protests and riots. Jury selection is set to start Wednesday morning.
Jury selection has not yet begun.
Thousands were protesting the deadly police shooting of Keith Lamont Scott. FOX 46 Charlotte was there, just feet away, when shots were fired.
In Borum's video confession from a police interrogation, which was played in open court Monday, Borum admits to firing a shot and the crowd scattering during the protests.
But earlier in the roughly 3-hour-long interrogation video, Borum denied having any involvement in the shooting.
Carr, a father-to-be, was shot in the head.
If convicted of first-degree murder, Borum faces life in prison without parole.
Jury selection has not yet begun. Prosecutors played the first part of a video this morning where Borum reportedly confessed to firing the fatal shot. We’ll hear the rest of the video when we return from lunch at 2. WATCH @FOX46News at 5 & 6 tonight for more.— Robin Kanady (@RobinFox46) February 11, 2019
