The trial of a northwest Iowa man charged in the shooting death of a policeman is getting underway. Jury selection will begin today in the trial of 33-year-old Corey Trott of Rockwell City in Wright County District Court in Clarion.

Trott is accused of first degree murder in the death of Rockwell City Police Officer Jamie Buenting nearly a year ago on September 13, 2013. Officer Buenting was shot by Trott after a standoff in his residence. The trial was moved to Wright County from Calhoun County due to pretrial publicity. Trott is in the Webster County Jail on the murder charge filed against him.
