LAS VEGAS (AP) — A jury could be seated in Las Vegas for the trial of a former Cirque du Soleil (sihrk doo soh-LAY') performer accused of killing and dismembering a dancer in the Luxor hotel-casino's "Fantasy" revue.
Jury selection resumes Wednesday for the murder case against Jason Omar Griffith.
Defense attorneys say openings could come by the end of the day.
Griffith has pleaded not guilty. His lawyers say he was defending himself during an argument with 31-year-old Deborah Flores Narvaez when she died in December 2010.
Flores Narvaez went by the name Debbie Flores. She was reported missing when she failed to show up for her show.
Griffith was arrested in January 2011, after Flores' body parts were found in two concrete-filled containers in an empty Las Vegas home.
