TULSA, Okla. (AP) – The second murder trial of a former Tulsa police officer for the shooting death of his daughter’s boyfriend is set to begin.

Potential jurors are to gather Monday in Tulsa County District Court for the start of the first-degree murder trial of Shannon Kepler in the August 2014 shooting death of 19-year-old Jeremey Lake.

Kepler has claimed self-defense. His first trial ended with a hung jury on the murder charge, but he was convicted on two misdemeanor counts of reckless conduct with a firearm.
