Jury selection begins in retrial for alleged MS-13 getaway driver
Jury selection begins today in the retrial of an alleged MS-13 gang member accused of murder.
Prosecutors say Jose Suarez was the getaway driver after Esteban Alvarado-Bonilla was shot to death in a Central Islip deli in 2017.
A judge declared a mistrial earlier this month during his first trial after a juror made a claim of misconduct. It’s still not clear what the misconduct was.
The gunman who killed Alvarado-Bonilla has already pleaded guilty.
