Jury selection is set to begin Monday in the trial of a man charged with killing a Watonga woman back in 2005.

Prosecutors are seeking the death penalty for Wendell Grissom.

Grissom is accused of shooting to death 23-year-old Amber Matthews. He's also charged with shooting with intent to kill. Prosecutors said Grissom and another man forced their way into the home of one of Matthew's friends and began shooting.

The trial has been moved from Blaine to Garfield County.
