ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (KRQE) – Jury selection began Monday for the man charged with killing a Sandia High School student. Prosecutors say Izaiah Garcia shot and killed 17-year-old Sean Markey at a party after homecoming back in 2019.

According to investigators, Markey wasn’t the intended target. They believe Garcia was looking for another person who he thought beat up his friend.
