Jury selection is expected to begin Monday, September 24, 2018, in the trial of Steven Ray Killingsworth, a Shreveport man accused of a May 22, 2016 attack on his former girlfriend. Killingsworth, 50, faces a charge of attempted second-degree murder in the incident, in which the victim was shot numerous times.
The alleged attack in the 6700 block of Liberty Street, in the city’s Cedar Grove neighborhood, was witnessed by several of the victim’s family members. Prosecutors anticipate presenting evidence from the North Louisiana Criminalistics Laboratory, representatives who responded from both Shreveport Police Department and Shreveport Fire Department, as well as medical testimony and eyewitness testimony.
The trial will be before Caddo Parish District Judge John D. Mosely Jr.
“The violent nature of this domestic case makes it of particular interest to our office,” said Assistant District Attorney Pamela Moser, who will prosecute the case with fellow ADA Ron Christopher Stamps.
Killingsworth has elected to self-represent, after previously being represented by the Public Defender’s Office.
If convicted as charged, Killingsworth faces a possible prison sentence of not less than 10 years and up to 50 years without benefit of parole, probation or suspension of sentence.
