Attempted murder case set to begin

An attempted murder trial for a man accused of burying a child alive is expected to begin in the Grand Court on Tuesday.

The charge stems from an incident in November 2018. Travis Jarrell Webb, 27, also faces a charge of cruelty to a child.

On Monday, a Grand Court jury was selected.

Webb, who is currently in custody, denies the charges.
