LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) - Jury selection started Monday morning in the trial of a Lubbock man accused of breaking into an elderly couple's home, and beating a man inside.
Jaffice Harris, 20, faces felony robbery and burglary charges. Police say he broke into a home in the 3800 block of 48th street last November and beat a 74-year-old man with his own cane. Investigators later determined Harris lived only a few blocks away.
Police arrested Harris across town, in connection with an attempted purse snatching at the United Supermarket at 50th and Avenue Q.
Harris remains in the Lubbock County Jail awaiting his trial.
