One of the most publicized murder cases in Caldwell County history starts its trial today.

At 10 a.m., Jerry Anderson, suspected of murdering his wife in January of 2006, begins his trial in Gaston County. Change of venue from Caldwell to Gaston County was granted at the request of the defense. Jury selection is expected to take as much as a week in the trial of a man who reported his wife Emily missing in December of 2005. Emily’s truck was recovered in January of 2006 at a Waffle House parking lot in Duncan, South Carolina. After the truck was brought back to Caldwell for processing, her body was discovered in the trunk. Detectives believe she was shot at Carolina Holsteins, the Sawmills dairy farm owned and operated by Jerry Anderson. Anderson was charged with first-degree murder and indicted in February of 2006. The state is seeking the death penalty.
