Jury selection began Monday in the trial of a Shelbyville man charged with shooting Hannah Grace Perryman in the head last Aug. 13 at her boyfriend’s Warners Bridge Road home.
Samuel Earl Rich, 25, is charged with attempted first degree murder. Rich allegedly confronted Perryman as she entered the master bedroom of the home of Will Warner, who was found dead later that day in Nashville. Rich is also charged with Warner’s death and will be tried in that case.
Rich allegedly fled after shooting Perryman. She was able to call 911 for help.
This week, Rich is being tried on charges of attempted first degree murder, use of a firearm in the commission of a dangerous felony, vehicle theft, aggravated burglary, burglary, and tampering with evidence.
Warner had been shot several times in the head and back. Investigators allege Warner was shot after being taken to Nashville. His stolen Jeep was discovered on Smith Chapel Road.
