Four jurors selected in four days for capital murder trial

MCLENNAN COUNTY - Four jurors have now been seated for the capital murder trial of Carnell Petetan Jr. Potential panelists are being questioned one by one since the state is seeking the death penalty against Petetan.

Attorneys have to agree on 12 jurors plus two alternates before testimony can begin, and right now that is scheduled to start April 7 in McLennan County's 19th District Court.

Petetan is accused of fatally shooting his 44-year old wife Kimberly Farr Petetan in front of her daughter at their home in 2012.

Carnell Petetan, who had a previous conviction for attempted murder, had been out of prison less than six months when the shooting happened.
