Local triple homicide trial to begin this month in Belfast

by Sarah Craighead Dedmon

Jury selection for the trial of Thomas Bonfanti of Northfield is set to begin May 23 in Belfast. 

“We’re anticipating three to four days to pick a jury and up to two weeks for the trial,” said Bonfanti’s attorney Jeffry Toothaker, who was appointed to the case on April 8. 

Bonfanti has entered a plea of not guilty, and earlier this year requested his trial be held in another county to avoid possible tainting of the jury pool by pre-trial publicity.
