MASON CITY, IA- A north Iowa murder trial gets underway this week

36-year-old Aaron Harris is facing the first degree murder charge in the death of his girlfriend, Sarah Winters.
She died last July from strangulation.

It’s an important day for the trial.
Attorneys are selecting the jury that will make that final decision..guilty or not.
Today, attorneys from both sides were able to ask a pool of people various questions that would help them narrow down who would be a good fit for this particular case.
The prosecution started, and focused on questions like; is knowing the motive important? What do you think pre-meditation means? They also asked about mental illness.

The defense is going with a diminished responsibility and intoxication defense. They asked the pool about their relationship to anyone in law enforcement and their opinion of mental health professionals.

Once the jury get’s narrowed down to 12 with one alternate, the trial will begin.
