Suspect in kids' deaths on trial in gun case

FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. (AP) -- The suspect in the deaths of two children whose bodies were found inside suitcases floating in a canal is expected in federal court in Fort Lauderdale for a trial on an unrelated weapons charge.
Clem Beauchamp faces up to 30 years in prison on charges of illegally possessing a handgun and homemade silencer. His trial is scheduled to begin Monday.
Beauchamp is suspected in the deaths of 10-year-old Jermaine McNeil and 6-year-old Ju'Tyra Allen. Their bodies were found in a Palm Beach County canal earlier this year. He is also a suspect in the death of their mother, 25-year-old Felicia Brown, who was Beauchamp's girlfriend. Her body was found in a dump last August.
Prosecutors say Brown would have been a key witness against Beauchamp in the gun case.
