Murder Trial To Begin Soon

by Jessica Cervantez

Jury selection continued for 43-year-old Scott Eizember. He is facing two counts of first degree murder for the deaths of a Creek County, Oklahoma couple. Prosecutors are seeking the death penalty.

Eizember was captured in East Texas after a month-long manhunt. Opening arguments in his case are expected to start Thursday.

The Angelina County sheriff and several East Texas deputies are expected to testify. The trial was moved to El Reno, Oklahoma, because of intense media coverage.
