A jury of six women and four men have been selected for the capital murder trial of Scotty Gardner.

Gardner is accused of murdering Susan Heather Stubbs in a Conway hotel room back in 2016.

For the first time in more than 30 years, prosecutors are seeking the death penalty.

Gardner reportedly told authorities anger and jealousy led him to kill Stubbs.

Opening statements for the trial begin Monday.

It is expected to last through Friday.
