Jury choice starts in motivation expert's NY death

Jury choice starts in motivation expert's NY death

Jury selection has started for the trial of a man charged with murdering a motivational speaker in New York City. The man says self-help expert Jeffrey Locker enlisted him to stage a suicide that looked like a robbery.
The jury selection process started Monday for the trial of Kenneth Minor. It's due to continue Tuesday.
The 52-year-old Locker was found stabbed in the chest in his car in East Harlem in July 2009. His hands were bound behind his back.
The 36-year-old Minor says Locker approached him on the street seeking help killing himself. Minor says Locker lamented his financial problems after investing in a Ponzi scheme. Minor says the speaker wanted the suicide to look like a slaying so his family could collect insurance money.
