Estes trial begins PDF Print
Thursday, 03 January 2008 06:27
Today marks day one of 53-year-old Gloria Hughes Estes’ murder trial. 
Estes has been charged in the 2005 murder of 59-year-old Samuel Joe Roberson of Newland. Roberson was found dead from severe head trauma. A change of venue was granted and the trial moved from Avery to Mitchell County. Defense attorneys felt the publicity surrounding the incident made a fair jury impossible to find in Avery County. Jury selection was last week and opening statements will commence today.
