BLUEFIELD, WV (WVVA)-- The jury selection begins for the man who  is accused of killing the mother of his child.

28-year-old Marcus McKinley is accused of first-degree murder of 18-year-old Ayana Patton of Bluefield.

Patton's body was found inside of her apartment in May 2011 as the victim of an apparent domestic shooting.

In November McKinley had turned down a plea deal to first degree murder with mercy which would make him eligible for parole after 15 years.

Opening statements in McKinleys trial will begin later this afternoon. The case will be heard in Judge Omar Aboulhosn's courtroom.
