By  | 

Testimony began Thursday in the Washington County murder trial of a former Bryan resident. Georgina Blake, 19, is accused of fatally shooting Rodney Parker, 44, inside his home in January, 2007.

Investigators say Blake was spotted driving an SUV near Parker's home on the day of his murder. When they tried to stop her, they say Blake took off.

She later abandoned the vehicle with her 2-year old child still inside. Blake was captured and arrested for child endangerment. After further interrogation, she was charged with first-degree murder.
