      Trial set for Ishpeming man charged with murder

      The trial of an Ishpeming man facing murder charges is set to begin Wednesday morning in Marquette County Circuit Court after jury selection concluded on Tuesday.

      Jack Carpenter is facing a charge of open murder, as well as felony fire arms.

      In June of last year, police were alerted to the death of 29-year-old David Meyer. The two men reportedly got into an altercation in Carpenter's home. Carpenter claims Meyer threatened and attempted to assault him with a knife, so he shot him in self defense.

      Jury selection started on Tuesday morning and lasted throughout the day. The trial is set to get underway with opening statements on Wednesday.

      TV6's Jennifer Perez will be following the trial from court on Wednesday, providing updated information throughout the day.
