Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- The man accused of beating his four-month-old son to death is about to go on trial.

Jury selection for the trial of 36-year-old Daniel Cox began Monday morning.

Cox pleaded not guilty to a murder and domestic violence charge in Jayceon Chrystie's death in August 2015.

Witnesses called 911 to report seeing a man beating an infant in a car seat while driving down a highway in Elizabethtown. Authorities say the child had no pulse when Cox left Jayceon with the baby's mother, who called police.

The boy died two days later at the hospital.

Cox faces 20 years to life in prison if convicted.
