GREENE COUNTY, TN (WJHL) – A jury is seated and the trial of a man charged in a 2014 Greene County murder is underway.

Mario Keene is charged with murdering Donald Ray Gunter.

A jury was brought in from Hamblen County for the case, after a judge granted a change of venue motion filed by Keene’s attorney.

Gunter was found dead in his home on Old Mountain Road in February 2014.

The defense argued for the change in venue due to media coverage of the murder.

Amanda Harris is also charged in the case and pleaded guilty to second-degree murder.

She was sentenced to 25 years in prison.
