Trial opens in killing of Kirkwood cop
By William C. Lhotka
ST. LOUIS POST-DISPATCH
03/26/2007

Jury selection began in Clayton this morning in the death-penalty trial of Kevin Johnson, accused of fatally shooting Kirkwood police officer on July 5, 2005.

St. Louis County Circuit Judge Melvyn W. Wiesman told prospective jurors that the trial could last two weeks and interfere, "unfortunately, with both Passover and Good Friday.''

Johnson, 21, is charged with first-degree murder in the death of Kirkwood police Sgt. William McEntee, 43, a father of three. The shooting took place in the Meacham Park neighborhood. Johnson has entered a plea of innocent.

If Johnson is convicted of first-degree murder, jurors will have to decide in a punishment phase of the trial if he should die by lethal injection or spend the rest of his life behind bars.

Prosecuting Attorney Robert P. McCulloch is personally trying the case. McCulloch and defense attorney Robert Steele questioned jurors today about their views on the death penalty and the publicity that the case has garnered over the past 18 months.
