Jury is set in Columbia murder trial – opens today

(AP) — A jury was selected Monday in the trial of a man charged with killing his Chinese wife two years ago and leaving her body at a Boone County park.

Joseph Elledge, of Columbia, is charged with first-degree murder in the death of 28-year-old Mengqi Ji. Elledge reported her missing on Oct. 10, 2019, prompting numerous searches before her remains were found March 25 in a remote area of Rock Bridge State Park about 5 miles (8 kilometers) south of Columbia.
