Benjamin Trial

A Dothan man charged with capital murder goes on trial next week.

Twenty-two-year-old Brandon Benjamin is accused in the shooting death and robbery of 52-year-old Jimmy Floyd Lewis.

The Ozark man was gunned down in the parking lot of Wiregrass Commons Mall in November 2000.

Benjamin was arrested three weeks later after a search of his mobile home turned up the victim's wallet, credit cards and a possible murder weapon.

Investigators say Benjamin became a suspect after he allegedly bragged about the crime.

Jury selection in the case begins this morning at the Houston County Courthouse.
