Jury selection begins Tuesday in 'Baby Joe' murder trial
(Mike Osborne) -- The so-called “Baby Joe” murder trial gets underway Tuesday.
Joseph Daniels is charged with the beating death of his five-year-old son Joe Clyde Daniels in 2018.
Jury selection begins today in Chattanooga. The presiding Dickson County judge chose to bring in an outside jury after Joseph Daniels' defense team expressed concerns that extensive media coverage has tainted the mid-state jury pool.
Baby Joe’s body has never been found, but Joseph Daniels confessed to the boy’s murder. He’s since recanted that confession.
