Murder for Hire Trial Begins

by Jessica Cervantez

A jury has now been selected for what is being called a "murder for hire" case.  The trial will happen in Nacogdoches.

The trial of Marcia Kelly will begin early Tuesday morning. 

Kelly is charged in connection with the October murder of her husband, 32-year-old James Kelly.  Her husband was shot in the head while he was sleeping at his home in Cushing.

Kelly's defense attorney tried to get the trial moved out of the area because of all the publicity surrounding the case.  The trial will stay in Nacogdoches.

Five other people are also accused of taking part in the killing.
