Meatball sandwich horseplay leads to two deaths, family betrayal, two trials
Family betrayal, patience and a glob of spit all led to Ruben Jordan being tried for murder Thursday and his son ready to testify against him.
Jordan, 38, is accused of shooting Vernon Davis to death on Oct. 31, 2008, in Over-the-Rhine.
Two weeks before that, Davis and Brian Austin were fooling around with Jordan's 16-year-old son, Kareem "Little Red" Gilbert.
The horseplay got out of control and an angry Austin hit Gilbert in the head with a meatball sandwich. Gilbert, now angry himself, then shot and killed Austin as Davis ran off.
