Jury selection is scheduled to get underway Friday in the trial of a teen accused of stabbing to death a 13-year old during a sleepover in Palm Beach County.

Corey Johnson was 17 when cops say he murdered Jovanni Sierra and then attacked another boy and a woman at a home in Palm Beach Gardens in 2018.

The teen who survived was stabbed 32 times. The woman was the mother of one of the teens at the sleepover.

Investigators say Johnson confessed and cited his Muslim faith as a motive. Authorities say the suspect watched several ISIS videos prior to the attack.
