JEFFERSON CITY - Keith Kellner's trial for first degree murder and armed criminal action is currently underway after jury selection finished Monday morning.
Kellner allegedly shot his wife Pamela Kellner in a McDonald's booth in Jefferson City in December 2010. The couple had been recently separated. Pamela Kellner died in a hospital soon after, and Keith ran away onto the highway. Kellner later called the police and turned himself in.
Prosecution will not be able to use the death penalty, as it has waived that right if its prosecution is sucessful.
