Jury selection set in 2010 Mountain Home killing

Posted: December 17, 2012 at 8:41 a.m.

— Jury selection is scheduled to begin in the first-degree murder trial for a Mountain Home woman accused of fatally shooting her boyfriend two years ago.

Rhonda Clark is charged in the November 2010 death of 43-year-old Antonio Sanchez III.

Police say Sanchez was killed the day before Thanksgiving. Authorities say an autopsy showed he was shot in the head and back with a .22-caliber rifle.

Attorneys for Clark argue that Sanchez was abusive and that Clark shot him in self-defense.

Mountain Home radio station KTLO reports that jury selection is set for Monday morning and the trial is expected to last two or three days.
