Jury selection was scheduled for Friday in the first-degree murder trial of Michael W. Young, 48, Lambeth Court, and the trial was set to start with opening statements on Monday morning.

But last week, as prosecutors were working on trial preparation, they discovered that video from police car dash cameras existed but was never turned over to them from the Johnson City Police Department. Two JCPD investigators — Criminal Investigative Division Capt. Matt Howell and the lead investigator on the case, Joe Jaynes, attended the hearing and acknowledged dropping the ball.

The shooting

Police responded to the corner of North Roan Street and Lambeth Drive on Feb. 13, 2016, after Mijares’ teenage son waved down a passing motorist for help. The teen said he had witnessed Young shoot his father.
