CONWAY, Ark. (AP) - A jury has been seated in the trial of a former doctor charged in a decade-old double slaying in central Arkansas.
A jury of seven women and five men will consider the case of 63-year-old Richard Conte. Conte was charged with two counts of capital murder in 2011 in the 2002 shooting deaths of 49-year-old Carter Elliott and 25-year-old Timothy Wayne Robertson in Conway.
He has pleaded not guilty.
The charges were filed shortly before Conte was released from a Nevada prison where he served a sentence for kidnapping his ex-wife, Lark Gathright-Elliott - who was once married to Carter Elliott.
Prosecutor Cody Hiland is not seeking the death penalty in the case. Conte faces life in prison without parole if convicted.
