Mattoon – Jury selection has begun for 25 year old Joshua Mefford.
Mefford is accused of killing another man during a motel robbery. Mefford was originally arrested for the assault and robbery of 58 year old Robert Montague at the US Grant Motel. A coroner later determined he was killed during the robbery.
