NEWPORT—A jury of six women and six men heard some emotional 9-1-1 recordings, listened to recordings of the defendant talking in a county patrol car, and heard law enforcement testimony on Wednesday during the first day of a first-degree murder trial.

The trial of Cosby resident Randy Ramsey is expected to last at least three days. It is the first murder trial, and the first criminal court jury trial of any kind, in Cocke County in almost a year.

Ramsey is charged with first-degree murder in connection with the June 17, 2010, shotgun killing of 33-year-old Mollie Amanda Marie Greene-Howard. The shooting occurred inside the apartment they shared on the lower level of Park Entrance Grocery off Cosby Highway. The woman died as a result of a single shotgun wound.
