Jury Selection Underway in Minot Murder Case

Minot, ND - A pool of 125 prospective jurors is being whittled down to 12 jurors and two alternates today and tomorrow.
The jurors will hear the case against Bradley Morales.

He's facing a Double-A Felony Murder charge in North Central District Court in Minot.
Prosecutors say he stabbed his estranged girlfriend to death while the couple's three children were in the house last August.
25-year-old Charmaine Leake died about a week later.

The defense has indicated it will argue that actions by police officers responding to the stabbing contributed to Leake's death.
Opening statements in the case are likely Monday.
