Jury selection begins in toddler death trial

LEE COUNTY, AL (WTVM) – Jury selection is underway in the capital murder trial of a Lee County man accused of killing his girlfriend's toddler.

In a dress shirt and tie, Kenneth Jones sits at the defense table as potential jurors are selected in his capital murder trial.

Investigators say on March 22, 2009 Jones was watching the 14-month old child when 9-1-1 received a call of an unresponsive child.

The young child was pronounced dead at the hospital and Jones was arrested after an autopsy revealed the child had died from blunt force trauma.

News Leader 9 expect to learn exactly what prosecutors believe happened that day when testimony begins.
