Trial begins for son accused of parents' murder

BURLINGTON, KY (FOX19) -

Jury selection began Monday in the trial of a former sheriff's deputy accused of killing his parents at their Union home.

Michael Moore, 43, has claimed self-defense in the 2009 fatal shooting of Warren and Madge Moore. Moore originally told investigators immediately after the shootings that an anonymous intruder killed his parents.

He is facing murder, tampering with evidence, falsely reporting an incident and possession of a handgun by a convicted felon charges. In January, Judge Anthony Frohlich agreed to let Moore serve as co-counsel in the trial.

Moore said he has confidence in his attorneys, but he wants to have a say in what happens during his trial.

He is a former Warren County sheriff's deputy, but doesn't have any other experience in criminal justice.

The trial could last up to seven weeks.
