SCOTTSBURG, IN (WAVE) - Police say he confessed to killing his ex-wife and now the search has begun for the jurors who will decide his fate.

It has been more than two years since the body of Nina Keown was found in a Clark County field. Petty, 26, disappeared in August 2010 after a music festival in Scottsburg.

Investigators say Robert Petty originally told them he and Keown got into a fight, but he left.

Weeks later, Scott County sheriff's deputies say Petty changed his story and led them to the wooded area where he dumped Keown's body.
