A jury of 12 has been picked from 975 people called in the case of a man charged with killing a woman in 2010.

McCracken Circuit Judge Craig Clymer and attorneys weeded through prospective panelists in the case of Mark Taylor. He's charged with murder, kidnapping and tampering with evidence.

The case stems from the death of 21-year-old CaSondra Evrard, who was found dead in a creek bed with stab wounds to her chest and cuts to her neck and face on Dec. 11, 2010.

WPSD-TV in Paducah reported that opening statements were scheduled to begin later Monday.

Prosecutors will ask for a death sentence for Taylor if he's convicted.

Five other people have pleaded guilty. Taylor's daughter, Jasmine Taylor, is scheduled to stand trial in March.
