MCLENNAN COUNTY - The long awaited capital murder trial of Carnell Petetan Jr. began Tuesday morning in McLennan County, after attorneys selected the final two jurors Monday.

Petetan is accused of shooting his ex-wife, Kimberly, multiple times in front of her daughter in September 2012. It happened at an apartment complex on Lake Shore Dr.

Petetan had been out of prison less than six months before the killing. He underwent a number of competency evaluations.

Prosecutors brought two inmates from Huntsville to Waco to testify in the trial. They are seeking the death penalty.

Testimony could last three weeks.
