KFC Murder Suspect Tried For Perjury

Jury selection began today in the perjury trial of Darnell Hartsfield. He is one of the three men suspected in the Kentucky Fried Chicken murders in Kilgore, twenty-two years ago.

Hartsfield was indicted on perjury charges last November after he told a grand jury he was not at the restaurant the night of the murders. Prosecuters say DNA evidence left at the scene proves he was there. The trial begins tomorrow morning at 8:30.
