WALNUT HILLS (FOX19) -

The trial is set to begin this week for the man charged with killing a 17-year-old girl who was an innocent bystander outside a Cincinnati YMCA two years ago.

Cincinnati police say Rico Mosley, 20, fired a hail of bullets outside the Melrose YMCA as a 'Sweet Sixteen' birthday party ended on April 4, 2015.

Kelsie Crow, a junior at Purcell Marion High School who played on the soccer team, died in her car while trying to flee the gunfire, police have said.

She was found in the driver's side of the crashed vehicle, struck in the neck by a stray bullet that lodged in her back, according to police.

Police have said she was an innocent bystander.

Two other teens, 17 and 15, were shot and suffered non-life threatening injuries.

At least 100 teens were outside the building when nearly 30 shots were fired, according to police. 

Despite all the witnesses, it took police nearly a year to arrest Mosley.

He is being tried on two counts of murder and four counts of felonious assault. 

Pre-trial motion are scheduled to start at 10 a.m. Monday before Hamilton County Common Pleas Court Judge Patrick Foley.

Jury selection will begin on Tuesday.

Mosley is held in lieu of $1.5 million bond at the Hamilton County jail.
