The trial of a Lufkin woman accused of injecting 10 kidney dialysis patients with bleach and killing five of them is set for Sept. 6.

Angelina County District Attorney Clyde Herrington said jury selection will begin Aug. 9, and is expected to take up to three weeks. The trial will take up to a month, Herrington said.

Herrington is pursuing the death penalty as a punishment for Kimberly Saenz.

Saenz worked for Davita Dialysis Clinic in 2008, when it was closed down after an unusual amount of patients of the clinic died.

A grand jury indicted Saenz for one count of capital murder and five counts of aggravated assault in 2009.
