Trial to begin for young man accused of fatally shooting El Capitan High student

Posted: Updated:

EL CAJON (CNS) - Jury selection was scheduled to begin at the El Cajon courthouse Monday for the trial of a 19-year-old man accused in the fatal shooting of an El Capitan High School student on the Barona Indian Reservation last fall.

Stanley Virgil Lloyd Jr. was charged with murder in the October 2010 death of 17-year-old Christopher Carioscia of Lakeside.

Carioscia went missing Oct. 26 after telling his family he was going surfing in Pacific Beach. The next day, his burned-out car was found on the trial grounds south of Ramona, and on Dec. 4, detectives found his body near the San Vicente Reservoir.

Lloyd was arrested at his Lakeside home in March. A motive for the killing has not been released by authorities.

Sheriff's authorities said Carioscia was shot several times with a .357-caliber gun sometime between the evening of Oct. 26 and the morning of Oct. 27.

A plastic bag containing the type of bullets that killed the teen was found near where his body was discovered, sheriff's Sgt. Dave Nemeth said.

Lloyd faces 50 years to life in prison if convicted, said Deputy District Attorney David Williams III.
