Jury trial is underway for one of two men charged in the fatal shooting of a Hutchinson mother.
Charles Christopher Logsdon is charged in the June 2011 shooting death of Jennifer Heckel.
Prosecutors say the shooting was apparently a case of mistaken identity. Investigators have said they believe Logsdon and co-defendant Billy Joe Craig planned to rob someone else but went to the wrong house and instead killed Heckel.
Prosecutors said Heckel was last seen alive in her garage at 6:25 p.m., when she went inside to watch television with her son. She was shot to death less than an hour later.
Prosecutors said Craig told investigators Heckel was executed over a $27,000 drug debt.
Heckel's neighbor, Leland Spivey, testified Heckel's 5-year-old son went to the Spivey's home and said "Mommy's been hurt".
During today's testimony a detective testified Logsdon made 420 phone calls from the Reno County Jail in which he mentioned Heckel's murder.
Jury selection took two days in a trial that prosecutors say could last at least a month. Craig's trial is scheduled for January.
