Attorneys have finished selecting a jury in the first-degree murder trial of Daniel Ralph Maples.
Deputy prosecutors and Maples’ attorneys are scheduled to deliver opening statements Tuesday in the courtroom of Superior Court Judge Thomas P. Larkin.
The trial is expected to last more than a month.
Maples is charged with killing 27-year-old Christine Blais in October 1988. Blais and Maples worked together at a Tideflats manufacturing plant.
Though arrested early in the investigation, Maples was released and not charged until 2005 when prosecutors said they found new evidence in the case.
