WICHITA, Kan. (AP) — The suspect in last year’s fatal shootings of two people at a Dollar General store in Wichita is going on trial.

KAKE-TV reports (http://bit.ly/1bXvkHx ) jury selection for the case against 20-year-old Marquis Marshall began Monday in Sedgwick County District Court.

Marshall is accused of killing 22-year-old store employee Zachary Hunt and 79-year-old customer Henry Harvey on Nov. 30, 2012. Harvey was at the counter buying candy for his grandchildren when he and Hunt were both shot several times.

Wichita police have not speculated on a motive for the killings.

Marshall was arrested several days later in a traffic stop. He’s charged with capital murder, but prosecutors are not seeking the death penalty.

The trial is expected to take several days.
