Trial Starts For Man Accused Of Murdering Fetuses

by Ramonica R. Jones

Jury selection started Tuesday for the murder trial of a Lufkin teenager.

Dozens of people were among the jury pool for the case against Gerardo Flores. The former Lufkin High School student is accused of helping his 16-year-old girlfriend abort their unborn twin sons last year.

Investigators believe Flores beat the girl and stomped on her stomach to kill the fetuses.

A Lufkin judge issued a gag order in the case. The trial is set to start Wednesday morning.
