WHEELING, W.Va.


The trial of a Florida man charged with killing a Wheeling Jesuit University student is getting underway.

Media outlets report that jury selection will be held Monday morning for Craig Peacock's trial. Opening statements will follow in Ohio County Circuit Court.

The 22-year-old Clewiston, Florida, man is charged with first-degree murder in the death of 21-year-old Kevin Figaniak of Perkasia, Pennsylvania.

Prosecutors say Figaniak was beaten during an argument on Aug. 31, 2013, and died the next day.

Co-defendant Jarrett Mathis Chandler of Winnfield, Louisana, pleaded guilty in January to involuntary manslaughter. He was sentenced to a year in prison.
