Jury selection is underway in the trial of Nicholas Smith.
Smith is one of two people accused of killing Kevin Thomspon, a school teacher from Wellborn. Prosecutors say Smith and Tyrone Thompson kidnapped Kevin Thompson from his Jacksonville home, killed him, and dumped his body off Highway 278 in Cherokee County. They are also accused of using his debit card at various ATM's in east Alabama.
We have no word yet on how long the trial will last. The trial of Tyrone Thompson has not been set.
