Trial begins for man accused in fatal stabbing 11 years ago

CHARLOTTE, NC (WBTV) - An 11-year-old murder case heads to court Monday in Mecklenburg County.

Tyrone Johnson is accused of stabbing a woman in Plaza Midwood to death back in 2000.

Johnnie Mae Shine ran from her house to a neighbor's home before she collapsed and died. Shine had a daughter who was graduating high school at the time.

Johnson's arrest came in 2010 when Charlotte Mecklenburg Police Department detectives got a hit on DNA after Johnson was arrested in a separate case in South Carolina.

Police have never said a motive.
