Jury selection to begin for Harvey Updyke, Jr.

Posted: Updated:

Jury selection in the Harvey Updyke, Junior trial begins this today.

Updyke pleaded not guilty to poisoning two oak trees at Toomer's Corner in Auburn. Updyke and his wife were in court Monday morning for a deposition. The trial has been delayed several times since his indictment in May 2011.

His attorneys say Updyke's health could prevent him from making it to the trial.
