January 16, 2012

BROOKVILLE — After almost two years, the double-murder trial of Steven Patrick Rebert Monday, began Monday, with the prosecution guiding the jury into what it could expect to hear, and the defense noting that the prosecution presented its opening arguments with no evidence of Rebert’s guilt.

BROOKVILLE — The first to testify in the double murder trial of Steven Patrick Rebert was Michelle Bright of DuBois, formerly of Coudersport, who works for the Brady Street Florist, DuBois.

Bright said before she moved, she sent flowers from Flowers & More to her boyfriend’s mother and got to know Vickie.
