      Trial to begin in SC restaurant shooting death

      Jury selection is scheduled to begin in the trial of a Beaufort man accused of shooting and killing a man in a restaurant more than a year ago.

      BEAUFORT, S.C. (AP) -- Jury selection is scheduled to begin in the trial of a Beaufort man accused of shooting and killing a man in a restaurant more than a year ago.

      The Beaufort Gazette reported the selection of jurors and a pre-trial hearing is set in Beaufort on Monday.

      Twenty-five-year-old Rajerick Lovell Knight is charged with murder and possession of a weapon during a violent crime.

      Prosecutors say Knight walked into a restaurant in July of 2011 and shot 28-year-old Travis Sentell Holmes. Holmes died at the scene.

      Knight was arrested in Jacksonville, Fla., three days later.
