UPDATE: Jury selection, witness testimony highlight day one of Greenbrier murder trial

CONWAY (Log Cabin Democrat) - The first day of the trial in the state's case against a man accused in the 2010 stabbing death of a Greenbrier woman saw jury selection, opening arguments and the testimony of several witnesses in Faulkner County Circuit Court under Judge Charles E. Clawson.

Ronald Adrean Britton Jr., 35, of Beebe, has pleaded not guilty to capital murder in connection with the death of 26-year-old Michelle Asher of Greenbrier.

Asher's family said she had been missing for about 24 hours when a family friend went to her home and found her body in the yard on Aug. 14, 2010. Authorities said she'd suffered multiple stab wounds to the neck and torso. Britton was arrested later that day in El Paso, Ark.

Prosecutors said they will ask for the death penalty if Britton is convicted.
