Watch: Leon Jacob Trial


Leon Jacob is charged with solicitation of capital murder and aggravated kidnapping. Jacob is accused of hiring a hit man to kill his ex-girlfriend. The jury, composed of 10 men and two women, was seated earlier this week. Investigators say that Jacob, and Valerie McDaniel, plotted for their exes to be killed. McDaniel, who was Jacob’s girlfriend and was a local veterinarian, committed suicide shortly after being arrested. Jacob’s defense is expected to argue that he was entrapped by police, and will show audiotapes police made during the sting in which they set-up the murders of both Jacob’s ex-girlfriend and McDaniel’s ex-husband.
