Two Murder Trials Begin Today

(Toledo, OH) Jury selection is scheduled to begin today in the trial of a man accused of a deadly stabbing at Maumee Bay State Park. 

Maurice Clark is charged with murder and felonious assault. Lucas County prosecutors say Clark stabbed Karl Avery to death during a fireworks show last summer. Clark's brother was convicted last month of his role in the murder. 

A Toledo man also goes on trial today, accused of torturing his girlfriend while holding their child hostage. 

Mark Holmes is facing rape, kidnapping and other charges. Prosecutors say Holmes terrorized his girlfriend for several hours at an East Streicher Street home in October before she escaped and called police from the hospital.
