Jury selection wrapping up, testimony to begin in Mundt trial

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Testimony could begin Wednesday afternoon in the murder trial of Jeffrey Mundt.

Jury selection was wrapping up Wednesday morning, and opening arguments are set to possibly begin after lunch.

Mundt is facing a murder charge in the death of James Carroll in December 2009. Carroll was killed after he had sex with Mundt and Mundt's roommate and lover Jeffrey Banis. The body was buried in the basement of the couple's Old Louisville home.

Banis was convicted of murder in this case in March, and is expected to be the star witness. He agreed to testify against Mundt in exchange for prosecutors dropping the death penalty.

But Banis asked the judge to throw out that agreement on Tuesday. The judge refused, but the possibility of an appeal still remains.
