BERNALILLO, N.M. (KRQE) - The week-long process of selecting a jury to decide the fate of an ex-cop accused of murdering his wife wrapped up Friday.
Opening statements and testimony are now scheduled to begin Monday at 9 a.m. in the first-degree murder trial of Levi Chavez.
Chavez is accused of killing his wife Tera at their Valencia County home in October of 2007 and staging it to look like a suicide.
Prosecutors say it happened because Tera was threatening to turn him in for insurance fraud. Chavez's attorney has said the facts will show Tera did kill herself with Levi's gun.
The Albuquerque Police Department fired Chavez after he was charged with the murder.
Jury selection began on Monday with the pool of potential jurors so large selection had to take place at Cleveland High School in Rio Rancho.
