Aunterrio Barney murder trial underway in Peoria
The Peoria murder trial for a 37-year-old Chicago man continues this week at the Peoria County courthouse. Aunterrio Barney is accused of killing four people when he set a Peoria house on fire. A 2-year-old boy died the day after the blaze. The fire killed sisters Youlandice and Brianna Simmons and Darresse Roddy. Barney was arrested shortly after the April, 2010 fire in North Carolina. Jury selection in the fist-degree murder trial was Wednesday.
