FARMINGTON, Utah (AP) -- Prosecutors expect to call two dozen witnesses in the Nov. 4 capital homicide trial of Trovon Donta Ross.

The 29-year-old Salt Lake City man is charged with aggravated murder in the shooting death of his ex-girlfriend, AnnaLee Christensen, 23, and with attempted aggravated murder in the wounding of her boyfriend, James T. May, 24.

The shootings occurred on June 30, 2003, at the woman's home in Clinton.

Attorneys met Monday with Judge Rodney S. Page to discuss jury questionnaires and other procedural matters.

Defense attorneys plan to call three expert witnesses.

If Ross is convicted of aggravated murder, the jury will decide whether he is sentenced to execution or life imprisonment with or without possible parole.

Christensen was shot three times in what police called an apparent domestic dispute. May was shot in the arm and chest, but recovered.

Ross was captured by police in Layton following a chase.
