PHENIX CITY, AL (WTVM) - News Leader 9 received an update Wednesday afternoon in the case of a woman accused of hiring a hit man to kill her daughter.

Jury selection is still underway in Lisa Graham's trial.

Her daughter, Stephanie Graham, was shot six times and then dumped on highway 165 near Bowden Road back in 2007.

We're told jury selection is taking longer because it's a death penalty case, which means a pool of 60 potential jurors are being questioned individually.

Jury selection is expected to end Thursday, with opening statements beginning Friday.
