GATE CITY, Va. — A jury of nine men and four women was selected Tuesday afternoon to hear the murder trial of a Bristol, Tenn. man who allegedly helped carry out the Christmas 2011 shooting death of a Nickelsville resident.

Opening statements in the first-degree murder trial of Charlie Joe Ramey, 61, of Bristol, Tenn. are set to begin this morning in Scott County Circuit Court as a result of the jury’s selection.

The trial, which is being presided over by 30th Circuit Judge John Kilgore, is expected to last through Friday.
