A Youngstown man accused of shooting his girlfriend in the head has rejected a plea deal and instead will go on trial.

Terrance Edmonds, 32, is charged with attempted murder, felonious assault, domestic violence, and a weapons violation.

Edmonds was arrested in July after authorities found 32-year-old Denise Thurston slumped over in the driver's seat of a car on Hilton Avenue.

Thurston, the mother of two children, survived after undergoing surgery for a gunshot wound to the head. 

Last month Edmonds took it upon himself to file a motion to suppress evidence and to dismiss the case against him.

Mahoning County Common Pleas Judge Scott Krichbaum overruled the motions, noting that Edmonds is represented by an attorney and should have had his lawyer file the motions.

Jury selection got underway on Monday.
