SANTA ANA, Calif. (AP) — Two women charged with the death of a woman after a fight outside an Orange County nightclub are going on trial.

City News Service reports jury selection began Monday and is expected to take several days.

Annie Hung "Kim" Pham was beaten outside the Crosby Bar and Nightclub in January. She died two days later after being taken off life support.

Candace Brito and Vanessa Zavala are charged with murder, assault with force likely to cause great bodily injury and sentence-enhancing allegations of causing great bodily injury.

Defense attorneys say there is ambiguity about what exactly led to Pham's death.
