LAWTON, Okla. — The trial of a Fort Sill soldier charged with first-degree murder in the starvation death of a 10-year-old boy at an Oklahoma Army base is scheduled to begin.

Jury selection is to start Monday for Pvt. Connell Williams. Williams was indicted by a federal grand jury for the May 5, 2011, death of Marcus Holloway, the son of Williams' girlfriend, at Fort Sill.

The trial will be held at the U.S. Courthouse in Lawton. Federal prosecutors are seeking the death penalty.

Williams and the boy's mother, Candice Holloway, allegedly deprived him of food for several months until he died. Holloway has pleaded guilty to first-degree murder as part of a plea agreement in which she will serve 30 years in prison and testify against Williams.

Williams has pleaded not guilty.
