RICHMOND, VA (WWBT) - The Richmond man accused of killing his girlfriend, hiding her 3-year-old son and then going on the run made his final court appearance this morning before his trial.

Michael Solomon is charged with first degree murder in the death of Tameka Claiborne.

His murder trial starts Monday and attorneys for both sides worry how media coverage will effect the jury pool.

At least 40 people will be brought in as potential jurors.

The trial is expected to last three days.
