Jury Selection in Case of Man who Lived with Dead Body


Devon Epps during a December 2011 court appearance


A jury is being selected in Stockton to hear the murder case against a man accused of living with the dead body of a former girlfriend for months.

Devon Epps was evicted from his apartment in December 2011. The next day, when the apartment manager stopped by, they found a dead body in the bathroom.

The body had been there awhile, and was rotting.

Epps was arrested and then arraigned a few days later; yelling and interrupting the San Joaquin County judge at his court appearance.

Investigators identified the body as Veronica Jones, who was last seen at a family function with Epps in May 2011.
