Jury selection expected to end in temple case

PHOENIX (AP) - Jury selection is expected to wrap up Tuesday in the retrial of an Arizona man charged with killing nine people in 1991 at a Buddhist temple in metro Phoenix.

Lawyers are expected to make opening statements Wednesday in the Johnathan A. Doody's retrial.

Doody is accused of participating in the August 1991 slayings at the Wat Promkunaram temple in one of Arizona's most notorious murder cases.

He was convicted in 1993 and sentenced to 281 years in prison, but an appeals court threw out his conviction in 2011 after ruling that investigators improperly obtained his confession.

He was put on trial again in August, but a judge declared a mistrial Oct. 24 after jurors failed to reach a verdict.

Doody's lawyers have said their client is innocent.
