A Macomb County Circuit Court jury has been picked for the trial of a meat market owner accused of fatally stabbing his parents four years ago.
Part of the evidence against 42-year-old Ronald Jabalee (JAB’-uh-lee) Jr. is based on a mysterious message in blood on his parents’ garage floor.
The eight women and six men picked Wednesday are expected to hear opening statements Thursday in Mount Clemens.
Jabalee lives in Clinton Township and is free on bond. His lawyer says he didn’t kill his parents.
He’s charged him with first-degree murder in the deaths of 58-year-olds Ronald and Christine Jabalee in their New Baltimore garage in 2006.
