Capital Murder Re-Trial In Longview

Jury selection was held today in Longview for the second trial of a man accused of murder during a botched robbery.

Twenty-five year old Brandon Mayfield and another suspect are accused of beating to death a Longview man during a home invasion last August. Jury selection for Mayfield's second trial got underway today.     

Authorities say Mayfield and another man broke into the home of Pedro Santo.

In Mayfield's first court case,  a mistrial was declared because of a jury issue.
