His arrest on the murder charge marked the sixth time in a dozen years he had been booked into Caddo Correctional.
Previously, he had been booked in on 2 counts each of first-offense DWI and driving on a roadway laned for traffic and one count each of third-offense DWI, cruelty to animals, illegal use of a weapon and refusing a chemical test, booking record show.
Prosecutors and defense attorneys must choose a dozen jurors for the murder trial; two alternates usually are selected as well. About a third of the jury was chosen in just four hours, according to a news release.
Selection ended at 6:30 p.m. on Monday with one man and three women chosen. Eight people remain and two more will be selected as alternates.
The Caddo district attorney's office says the jury will not be sequestered.
