[simage=5136,200,y,left] Jury selection began Tuesday morning in the first degree murder trial of Terry Cobbins, Jr. The 32-year-old Des Moines man is accused of killing Theresa Miller in January 2011. According to court documents, Miller’s husband, 43-year-old Michael Miller, of Knoxville, allegedly paid Cobbins to commit the crime so he could be with another woman. District Court Judge John D. Lloyd told the jury pool that he expected the trial to last until next Thursday, March 1st. Michael Miller is set to go on trial next month on the same charge.
