Twenty-8-year-old Anthony Baye has pleaded not guilty to charges including arson and murder. He is accused of setting 15 fires on Dec. 27, 2009, including a house fire that took the lives of 81-year-old Paul Yeskie Sr. and his son, 39-year-old Paul Yeskie Jr.
After the lawyers openings Thursday morning, jurors are scheduled to visit scenes related to the case. Testimony expected to start Friday morning.
Judge Constance Sweeney moved the trial out of Northampton. She also ruled that Baye would not be tried on charges related to other fires set earlier in 2009.
