SCOTTSBURG, IN (WAVE) - The jury has been seated and opening statements have been made in the trial of a man charged with choking his ex-wife to death and dumping her body in the woods.

Keown, 26, disappeared in August 2010 after attending a music festival in Scottsburg.

Investigators say Robert Petty admitted to getting into a fight with Nina Keown. Petty then led them to her body in a Clark County field.
