Jury selected in Richard Kachkar murder trial
A jury has been chosen for the trial of a St. Catharines man accused of killing
a Toronto police officer two years ago.
Richard Kachkar is charged with first-degree murder in the death of Sergeant Ryan Russell, who was killed when he was hit by a snow plow in January 2011.
More than 300 people were summoned as potential jurors and were told that the trial is expected to last about two months, starting February 4th.
Russell died after being struck while trying to stop a snow plow during a chase through snowy city streets.
