CENTREVILLE, Michigan — A two-week trial is expected for a southwestern Michigan certified public accountant in the slaying of a prominent 70-year-old colleague.

The Kalamazoo Gazette reports (http://bit.ly/1lmFIwo ) jury selection is Tuesday in St. Joseph County Circuit Court for Andy Brown, who is charged with first-degree murder.

David Locey was found shot to death Oct. 2 in his accounting office in Sherman Township, near Sturgis. Prosecutors say Brown was in a business dispute with Locey at the time of the killing. Court documents show dozens of potential witnesses could testify.

Defense lawyer Michael Hills has said that the case is highly circumstantial, there was no weapon found and there was no motive.
