ELIZABETHTOWN, KY (WAVE) - Jury selection got underway Wednesday in the trial of a Kentucky soldier charged with two murders.

The two were killed in Comer's home in Rineyville. Three children were in the home at the time of the murders. They were not harmed.  

Burke has pleaded not guilty. Jury selection is expected to take at least a week.
