GREAT FALLS —The trial of a former airman accused of killing his girlfriend's 3-year-old daughter is under way in Great Falls.
Jury selection began Monday in the deliberate homicide trial of 23-year-old Jerimie Hicks.
Cascade County prosecutors allege Hicks severely beat Kaelyn Bray on Feb. 27, leading to her death from brain injuries two days later.
Hicks also faces two counts of tampering with evidence for allegedly asking his father to delete his e-mail and other online accounts and for allegedly asking his mother to remove his bloody uniform from his house. Investigators found a uniform with blood stains on the boots and pants that matched the Kaelyn's DNA profile.
