Columbia, SC (WLTX) - A federal jury has been selected in the ammunition trial of a man also suspected of kidnapping a Columbia teenager.
Prosecutors and the defense Thursday settled on the men and women who will decide the fate of 52-year-old Freddie Grant.
Grant has been in federal prison since last August. Officers say during a search of his home, officers found a weapon, which they say is a violation because he's a convicted felon.
Richland County Sheriff Leon Lott has said repeatedly that Grant is the lead suspect in the disappearance of Gabbiee Swainson. The girl was last seen on August 18th of last year at her home.
Lott has said his investigators have found DNA evidence at Grant's home linking him to the disappearance. Grant had been in a relationship with Swainson's mother in the past.
