LUFKIN, TX (KTRE) -

Attorneys have selected a jury for a Lufkin man accused of killing his brother in a dispute over his wife in April 2011.

Gary Wayne Hodges, 53, will go to trial for murder on July 18.

Hodges was arrested in April after authorities determined he seriously injured his brother, Kevin Hodges, by hitting him with a tire knocker. He died four days later.

According to Sheriff Kent Henson, Gary Hodges told investigators he struck his younger brother in the head three times over a misunderstanding regarding Gary Hodges' wife. Kevin Hodges was stabilized at Memorial Hospital in Lufkin and later transported to Nacogdoches to see a neurosurgeon, where he was put on life support.

Henson said Gary Hodges came home from work and saw his brother coming out of the back part of his Fuller Springs house at Boardwalk Place. Henson said there was a misunderstanding between the brothers over Gary Hodges' wife, Kristie Hodges. Henson said Gary went into a fit of rage.
