Testimony is set to begin in the trial of one of five people charged in the fatal shooting of a Philadelphia-area musician in December 2011.

Twenty-year-old-year-old Jermaine M. Jackson is on trial in the killing of Levittown musician Danny DeGennaro, who was fatally shot at his home in what prosecutors say was a robbery attempt. A well-known local musician, DeGennaro had played with Bo Diddley and Billy Squier.

Prosecutors say Jackson, of Trenton, N.J., didn't pull the trigger. They say he helped plan and carry out the killing, conspiring with four other men. The Bucks County Courier Times reports a jury has been seated and testimony is set to begin Tuesday in Bucks County Court.
