ROCKFORD, Ill. — Jury selection has started in the trial of a Rockford man accused of killing a Wisconsin woman in 2012.

The Rockford Register Star reports (http://bit.ly/1hrqEJn) that proceedings started Monday in 24-year-old Kody Walsh's trial. He faces charges of first-degree murder and attempted first-degree murder. He is accused of shooting 36-year-old Lori A. Daniels of Afton, Wis., while they were passengers in a vehicle near South Beloit.

Walsh also is accused of trying to kill the driver of the vehicle. Walsh fled and was captured a week later in Memphis, Tenn., after a high-speed chase with police.

Walsh has pleaded not guilty to all charges.
