Jury Selection Underway in Toomer's Corner Tree Poisonings in Auburn
Jury selection has started in the trial of Harvey Updyke, the man charged with poisoning the famed Toomer's Corner live oak trees in Auburn.
Attorneys are asking potential jurors about their favorite schools and whether Harvey Updyke being an Alabama football fan would have any impact in rendering a verdict.
Updyke is charged with poisoning two of the oak trees after Auburn beat Alabama during the Tigers 2010 national title season.
Updyke's attorney says he will try to prove Updyke is not guilty by reason of mental disease and defect.
Jury selection is expected to continue throughout the week.
