The death-penalty murder trial of a man accused of gunning down a York City resident while robbing him of a pound of pot began with jury selection Monday in York County Court.
Kevin Mattison, 34, of Baltimore, is charged with first-degree murder, robbery and related offenses. If convicted of first-degree murder, prosecutors will seek the death penalty for him.
Chief deputy prosecutor Tim Barker said jury selection is expected to last three or four days, meaning Mattison’s trial might not begin until Thursday.
The defendant is being represented by defense attorneys Joanne Floyd and Jeff Marshall.
The background: York City Police said Mattison barged into the 610 W. Philadelphia St. home of Christian Agosto, 34, on Dec. 9, 2008, and shot Agosto in the head after robbing him of a pound of marijuana.
According to court documents, Johnson had called Agosto’s girlfriend, Tiffany Kenney, and told her Agosto was seeing another woman.
Kenney met with Mattison about 11 p.m. Dec. 9, 2008, and they went to Agosto’s apartment. Kenney went inside Agosto’s apartment and confronted him and the woman there with him, police said.
Mattison followed Kenney into the apartment, brandished a gun and ordered everyone to the ground, police said.
Kenney fled into the hallway, while Mattison demanded Agosto tell him where the marijuana was hidden, police said.
Mattison took the pound of marijuana from a kitchen cupboard, then shot Agosto in the head and fled, police said.
Convicted murderer: Mattison, also known as “Yummy,” is already a convicted murderer.
According to prosecutors, Mattison pleaded guilty in Baltimore to the equivalent of Pennsylvania’s third-degree murder in the mid-1990s, when he was 17.
He was sentenced to 20 years in prison, with the final 10 years suspended, prosecutors said; Mattison also has a pending rape charge in Maryland.
