Opening statements will be delivered Monday in the trial of four people accused of helping cop killer Maurice Clemmons after the shooting of four Lakewood police officers in November 2009.


Attorneys in the case seated a jury Thursday in Pierce County Superior Court.


Clemmons’ half brother, Rickey Hinton, 47, is charged with three counts of first- degree rendering criminal assistance.


Also on trial are Eddie Lee Davis, 21, his cousin, Douglas Edward Davis, 23, and Letrecia Nelson, 53. They are charged with various counts of first-degree rendering criminal assistance and weapons violations.


All have pleaded not guilty.


Prosecutors allege they helped Clemmons in several ways, including providing him with transportation, tending his gunshot wound and lying to investigators.


Clemmons gunned down police Sgt. Mark Renninger and officers Tina Griswold of Lacey, Gregory Richards and Ronald Owens at a Parkland coffee shop Nov. 29. He was shot dead by a Seattle police officer after a two-county manhunt.
