Jury selection set to begin in trial for KY soldier

Jury selection is set to begin Monday in the trial of a Kentucky soldier, charged in a double murder.

Police say Army Sergeant Brent Burke shot his estranged wife, Tracy Burke and her former mother-in-law, Karen Comer, in a Hardin County home, back in 2007.

The first trial ended in a mistrial, back in September.

Three children were in the house at the time of the shootings.

They hid in a closet for hours before calling 911.
