LIHUE, Kauai >> Jury selection has begun in the Kauai trial of a man charged with murder.

According to the Garden Island newspaper, 150 prospective jurors will go through the screening process before a 12-member jury and four alternates are selected in the trial of Vicente Kote Kapika Hilario.

Hilario is charged with murder in the death of 34-year-old Aureo Moore at Anahola Beach Park on Dec. 17, 2010. He has pleaded not guilty and also faces charges of retaliating and intimidating a witness.

Prosecutors allege that Hilario killed Moore to keep him from testifying against him and two others in connection to a robbery.

The trial in Fifth Circuit Court is expected to last four to six weeks.
