A jury has been seated in the trial of an accused arsonist.
Ashley R. Johnston, 19, is being charged with felony arson, felony criminal mischief, and misdemeanor criminal trespass.
Questioning, or voir dire, of potential jurors lasted all day on Tuesday. Opening arguments in the case will start on Wednesday morning.
Police used surveillance video to identify three suspects in the case.
Ryan Martin, 24, and Dillon West, 24, were also charged in connection with the June 2012 fire. The blaze caused $20,000 worth of damage to supplies and equipment used to lay new artificial turf at Adair-Kennedy Field.
All three defendants were to be tried together. But Johnston’s case was severed in December and a minor-in-possession-of-alcohol charge was dropped last week.
Martin and West are now scheduled for trial starting April 1st.
