The circuit clerk for St. Francis County says Judge L.T. Simes (SIMZ) is presiding over the capital-murder trial of a Lee County man accused of killing Marianna Fire Chief Chuck Boone.
Circuit Clerk Bette Green said jury selection in the trial of Steve Amos began Monday morning at the county courthouse in Forrest City. She said Simes plans to seat 12 jurors and three alternates.
The 43-year-old Boone was killed Dec. 30, 2007, at a home Amos shared with his estranged wife, Patti Amos, on Arkansas 1 south of Marianna. After Boone was killed, Amos reportedly held his estranged wife captive for several hours.
