Triple murder trial to start after flood delay

WHEATON — The first Chicago-area trial to allow cameras in court during testimony and through to a verdict gets under way following a delay caused by area flooding.

The Daily Herald reports jurors in the triple murder trial of Johnny Borizov will hear opening statements Tuesday at the DuPage County courthouse.

Borizov is accused of talking a friend into killing Jeffrey and Lori Kramer and their 20-year-old son, Michael, in their Darien home in 2010. The Kramers' daughter was Borizov's ex-girlfriend.

Cameras weren't permitted during jury selection. But they'll be allowed starting with opening statements.

The Daily Herald reports that up to 100 witnesses could be called during the trial, which could last a month. There are 10 witnesses cameras won't be able to shoot. They also can't capture jurors' faces.
