SPARTANBURG Co., S.C. (WSPA) – Jury selection is expected to start Monday in the murder trial of Akello Jeter.
The Spartanburg man is accused of killing Autumn Autumn Hunt. The 19-year-old was found several days after she went missing on Feb. 3, 2016.
Authorities say Hunt was shot to death and deputies located her burned vehicle behind a shuttered grocery store on Reidville Road five days after her disappearance.
Authorities say Jeter was Hunt’s ex-boyfriend. Investigators previously said Jeter confessed to his involvement in the murder and provided details only the murderer could have known.
7 News is told Jeter will represent himself at the trial.
