A Scientologist on trial for double murder: A story the church is very nervous about - 2019-01-07
Kenneth Thompson was taken into custody, and was later extradited to Yavapai County.
He's been in Yavapai County Jail for six years awaiting trial.
None of the news stories about his arrest or prosecution have mentioned his involvement in Scientology.
His lawyers, however, plan to make it central to their defense.
Jury selection begins tomorrow in Prescott.
Our sources tell us the Church of Scientology is very nervous about any publicity linking it to an accused double murderer on trial for his life.
