Jury Selection Begins For Teen Accused Of Killing Ex-Girlfriend

FORT COLLINS, Colo. (CBS4) — Jury selection began Monday for a teenager accused of killing his ex-girlfriend and taking her body to western Colorado.

Tanner Flores was in court last week ahead of planned 10-day trial that begins this week when prosecutors announced they would not seek the death penalty. The 19-year-old faces first-degree murder and kidnapping charges in the death of 18-year-old Ashley Doolittle.

Some 150 residents will be included in an initial jury pool and attorneys will narrow that to 14 jurors, including 2 alternates.

Doolittle’s mother reported her missing on June 9, 2016. Police have said the woman was killed after she and Flores broke up.
