Investigators say Hupperterz, who is a former Temple student, killed Burleigh inside his North Philadelphia apartment after meeting her at a bar.
He then allegedly took a Lyft car to his grandmother’s house in the Poconos and disposed of her body.
Opening arguments will begin Tuesday morning.
If convicted of first- or second-degree murder, Hupperterz would face a mandatory sentence of life in prison.
