Jury selection for Coleman murder trial set for April 11

Jury selection for the Christopher Coleman murder trial has been set for April 11, the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.

Coleman is facing three counts of first-degree murder for the strangulation deaths of his wife and two young sons in 2009.

The jury selection was supposed to begin on Feb. 15, but was postponed to allow additional forensic testing, the paper reports. Jury members will be selected from Perry County due to heavy publicity about the case in the Metro East.
