Racing Trial Jury Selection

Jury selection began Monday in Nacogdoches for a man accused of three counts of intoxicated manslaughter. 21 year old Antonio Martinez also faces three counts of felony car racing which investigators say led to the triple fatality. It happened on North Street in November, 2006. Authorities searched for Martinez for three months before he turned himself in. Once arrested, he escaped in September, but was found several days later in South Texas.

District attorney Stephanie Stephens and defense attorney Nicole LoStracco, a former assistant for Stephens, will face off in the courtroom. They are both candidates for district attorney. The trial is scheduled to begin Monday, February 11.
