Trial to Begin for Man Accused of Killing Repo Man

The man accused of killing a repo man in Fauquier County last summer will go on trial Monday.

Carroll Gregg is facing a second-degree murder charge in the shooting death of 23-year-old Junior Jordan Montero. 

Last June, Montero was trying to repossess Gregg 's 10-year-old pickup truck when Gregg came out of his home shooting, authorities said. The tow truck and pickup truck ended up in a water-filled ditch. Divers tried to rescue Montero, but there was nothing they could do to save him.

When a sheriff's sergeant reached the scene, Gregg pointed to the ditch and said, "He's in there dead," according to arrest documents.

"I shot him," Gregg allegedly said. "I shot, fell and shot again. It was an accident."

Montero had recently taken the job to save money for a wedding ring for his wife.

Jury selection for Gregg's trial will begin Monday morning. The trial is expected to start at noon.
