NORWICH – A trial begins today for a Norwich man who allegedly broke into a Norwich City residence last November.
Terry L. Sturdevant Jr., 21, is charged with second degree burglary and petit larceny.
Assistant District Attorney Stephen M. Dunshee and defense attorney Aaron A. Dean selected a jury Tuesday and presented their opening arguments on the case. Witnesses began testifying at 9 this morning.
Sturdevant was originally arrested following a phone call from what Police Chief Joseph Angelino described as an “alert and helpful neighbor.”
At approximately 2 p.m. on Nov. 20, 2007, a local resident reported seeing a suspicious young white male leaving a residence on Marshall Street, in the City of Norwich, who did not belong at the home. The citizen confronted the suspect and contacted police.
