CAMPBELL COUNTY, Tenn. (WVLT) -- A jury has been selected in the trial of Kenny Bartley.
The jury was selected Friday in Chattanooga with the trial beginning Monday in Campbell County.
Officials say Bartley brought a gun to Campbell County High School in November 2005 and opened fire when he was brought to the principal's office.
The shooting killed assistant prinicipal Ken Bruce, and wounded two other principals.
On the day he was supposed to go to trial, he pleaded guilty. Bartley was then sentenced to 45 years behind bars.
Shortly after that, however, Bartley got a new lawyer, who argued that his client was too young to comprehend what he was saying.
Then in 2011, a judge agreed to throw out that deal, and allow Bartley to stand trail.
Local 8 News reporter Hilary Magacs will be in court for the trial.
She'll post updates on her Twitter feed throughout the process; you can follow her at @WVLTHilary.
