In day two of the murder trial for a Manchester teen accused of killing his grandparents the prosecution was able to to begin questioning witnesses.

A jury was seated Thursday and opening statements began following a lunch break. Prosecutors wasted no time getting to witnesses in the case and were able to question five of them before court adjourned for the day.

Jury selection began Wednesday for 18-year-old Isaiah Sweet. He is charged with two counts of first degree murder in the shooting deaths of Richard and Janet Sweet in May of 2012.

Attorneys say they expect the trial to stretch into the middle of next week.
