Jury selection begins for elderly woman accused of murdering grandson


Jury selection began this morning in the murder trial of a West Bloomfield grandmother accused of murdering her grandson.

Sandra Layne, 75, allegedly shot and killed her seventeen-year-old grandson Jonathan Hoffman in the home they shared after his parents left Hoffman in Layne’s care and moved to Arizona.

Layne’s attorney, Jerome Sabbota, says that Hoffman was a troubled teen and a regular drug user that became violent. Records indicate that Hoffman attended an alternative school and was arrested on drug possession charges a few weeks before his death. Sabbota says that Hoffman tested positive for K-2, a synthetic marijuana, at a meeting with his probation officer the day he was killed.

Layne’s trial is expected to last two weeks.
