Jury selection in cyanide poisoning trial begins

Jury selection got under way today in the trial of a Center Moriches man accused of spiking his wife's coffee with cyanide.

David Steeves was arrested in 2008 and is now facing murder charges.

Police say he put cyanide in his wife's coffee and she died two weeks later.

Prosecutors say Steeves did it because he is gay, but did not want his wife to be with anyone else.
