Testimony in the capital murder trial of a Waco man began today after screening more than 200 potential jurors since February 24.

Carnell Petetan, Jr. is accused of killing his wife after forcing his way into her apartment located on East Lakeshore Drive in September 2012. Police say Petetan shot Kimberly Petetan multiple times before leaving the scene. He was later arrested by Bryan PD for a traffic violation. Authorities found the victim's 9-year-old daughter, unharmed, in the car with him during the arrest.

Prosecutors plan to seek the death penalty against Petetan.
