Jury selection begins in Fort Pierre attempted murder trial
PIERRE (AP) -- Jury selection is under way in the trial of a Fort Pierre man charged with attempted murder.
Derek Boe is accused of shooting out the window of a vehicle occupied by a 24-year-old Pierre woman on a Hughes County road in late January. Authorities say the shotgun blast missed the woman.
The media reports that about 100 prospective jurors were called for jury selection on Tuesday.
Boe has pleaded not guilty to attempted murder and other charges. He has said he was acting in self-defense.
