Jury selection began this morning for the murder trial of Cynthia Monson, accused of shooting to death her former lover Patricia Thomas on Jan. 17, 2009.
No explanation may be needed, considering the circumstances of the case, but a crew from CourtTV is in town to cover the trial.
Monson and Thomas had broken up about six months earlier, and at the time of the shooting at Monson's residence in the 6400 block of Second Avenue Northeast, they were reportedly arguing about the past, according to a spokesman for the Manatee County Sheriff's Office.
Monson called 911 after the shooting.
