Jury selection begins in trial of man accused of killing Clay City's police chief

Jury selection is underway in the trial of the man accused of killing Clay City police chief Randy Lacy last year.

Prosecutors say James Barnett was in the back seat of Lacy's patrol car when he shot and killed the police chief.

The high-profile case had to be moved to another county in hopes of finding an impartial jury, and it is expected to be a lengthy trial.

Barnett could face the death penalty if convicted.
