Jury selected in Gavin murder re-trial

6 months, 4 weeks ago by Scott Hardy

Opening arguments set for Tuesday afternoon

A jury has been selected in the re-trial of a Quincy man, charged in the 2015 shooting death of Carlous Wires, Sr.  

That jury was selected by late morning Tuesday during the second day of the trial of Steven Gavin in Adams County Circuit Court. Opening arguments will be delivered Tuesday afternoon, and the prosecution will start calling witnesses Wednesday morning. The trial will take up to seven days. Gavin's facing four counts of 1st Degree Murder and one count of Armed Robbery. His first trial ended in a hung jury last February after 13 hours of deliberation. Gavin's accused of shooting Wires in his North 4th Street home in November 2015, in a disagreement over the price of a drug sale. He's also charged with counts of possessing a weapon in a penal institution and intimidation. He's alleged to have had a home-made knife in his cell April 27th, which was found during an inspection. He’s also accused of telling Adams County jailers in early May that he'd kill any inmate who was put in his cell. Gavin's pleaded Not Guilty to those charges, which are currently on hold for the trial.  

Gavin's in the Adams County Jail on a total of $5.5 million bond.
