Opening statements are underway for a Madison County mother accused of leaving her newborn son in a suitcase outside a church near her home.
The baby was found dead by a grounds crew. Witness testimony is expected to being Tuesday morning in the trial of Shelia Ealey.
A jury was selected Monday. Ealey was indicted on a capital murder charge. The trial is happening at Madison County Circuit Court in Canton.
A lawn crew found the baby in July 2010 while they were working a Smith Chapel Missionary Baptist Church. It's on Livingston-Vernon Road in Flora. That's a few blocks from Ealey's home.
We have a crew inside the courtroom and we will bring you updates throughout the day.
