CHATTANOOGA, TN (WRCB) - John "Cutthroat" Simpson trial is scheduled to begin Wednesday.

Simpson was charged with felony murder in the 2010 shooting death of Bernard Hughes after an alleged home invasion and robbery.

His trial has experienced several delays, with Simpson firing his attorneys.

Channel 3 Eyewitness News reporter Sara Sidery is covering the case, and tweeting live from the courtroom. Follow her on Twitter @SaraSideryWRCB.


Three co-defendants sought separate trials in 2012 after statements were made by Simpson and another defendant that implicated Simpson.
