Murder trial in Rockland woman's slaying starts

Posted: Updated:

BROCKTON, Mass. (AP) — The murder trial of two men charged with a 2011 home invasion in Rockland that left a 36-year-old mother of four dead is scheduled to get started.

The Enterprise (http://bit.ly/11kgdOE ) reports that opening statements in the trial of 27-year-old Terrell Nicholas and 30-year-old Orlando Kavanaugh are expected Wednesday following the selection of the final juror.

They are both charged in connection with the July 2011 shooting of Tina Gonsalves in her family's apartment.

Prosecutors say Kavanaugh shot Gonsalves during a home invasion while Nicholas waited outside in a rented pickup truck.

An attorney for Nicholas says his client had nothing to do with the shooting. Kavanaugh's lawyer says his client is not guilty.

Prosecutors have not said why Gonsalves' home was targeted.
