Jury selection continued Monday in the murder trial of 32-year-old Jedidiah Troxel. The Crookston resident is accused of murdering 40-year-old Tanya Kazmierczk. As of about 2:00 pm Monday, 13 jurors out of 14 jurors had been picked.

Troxel was charged with second degree murder after Kazmierczk's body was found on August 26th last year near the Red Lake River in Pennington County. Autopsy reports showed that she died from multiple stab wounds and her throat was cut. Pennington County court documents say a witness saw Tanya Kazmierczak talking to Troxel in his car the morning after a party in Thief River Falls the day before her body was found. Police say they also found a pair of boots that Troxel owned that match prints that where found at the crime scene.

The trial is expected to start Tuesday morning.
