TULSA, Okla. (AP) — A jury has been selected to hear the murder trial of a man charged in the fatal shooting of a Tulsa police officer. A jury of nine men, three women, and two alternates was chosen on Thursday for the first-degree murder trial of 34-year-old David Anthony Ware.
Ware has pleaded not guilty to charges in the fatal June 2020 shooting death of Sgt. Craig Johnson and wounding of Officer Aurash Zarkeshan during a traffic stop.
Prosecutors are seeking the death penalty.
Opening statements in the trial are scheduled for Monday in Tulsa County District Court.
