LUFKIN, TX (KTRE) – Jury selection is set to begin Monday at 9 am in the capital murder trial of former Lufkin DaVita nurse, Kimberly Clark Saenz, 38, of Pollok.

Twelve jurors and 3 alternates will hear the case.  Saenz is charged with capital murder and 5 counts of aggravated assault. 

The charges are related to a 2008 case in which five people died and five were severely injured at the DaVita Lufkin Dialysis Center.  Investigators suspect Saenz injected the patients with bleach while they were receiving their treatments.

The Angelina County's office is pursuing the death penalty for Saenz.
