By Bob Hallmark - bio | email

CASS COUNTY (KLTV) - Jury selection is underway in a 17-year-old East Texas triple murder case.

Michael Kevin Hailey is accused of killing his ex-girlfriend, Gerri Butts, and her two daughters at their home in Cass County back in 1992.

The trial was moved to Nacogdoches because of pre-trial publicity. Now, Hailey is currently serving an 87-year prison sentence for another murder in Louisiana.
