RALEIGH, N.C. -
Jury selection is underway for the trial for two brothers charged in at least two violent home invasions in Raleigh.
Raleigh Police say brother Jahaad Tariem Allah Marshall and Shabar Master Marshall broke into the home of Jason Beyer and his wife around 3:30 a.m. on Jan. 7, 2013 in Raleigh's Oakwood neighborhood.
Beyer was shot in that back when he tried to confront the men, who were sexually assaulting his wife. Authorities say the female victim escaped the suspects and ran to a neighbor's house, where police were called to the home.
As a result of the shooting, Beyer was left paralyzed.
Jahaad Marshall is charged with one count of first-degree burglary, two counts of first-degree kidnapping, one count of attempted murder, one count of attempted first-degree rape and one count of possession of a firearm by a convicted felon.
Shabar Marshall is charged with one count of first-degree burglary, two counts of first-degree kidnapping, one count of attempted murder and one count of first-degree forcible sex offense.
The brothers were also charged in a few home break-ins in December 2012.
Shabar Marshall pleaded guilty to 15 charges while Jahaad Marshall is still scheduled to stand trial.
