CHATTANOOGA, Tenn. – A jury of 10 women and four men was selected Monday in Chattanooga to hear a former Rutherford County sheriff's deputy's reckless homicide case.

Ron Killings is accused in the July 2008 traffic death of 11-year-old Lakeisha White.

White, of Hopkinsville, Kentucky, was in Murfreesboro visiting her grandmother when she was hit while crossing the street.

Prosecutors have said Killings was traveling more than 70 miles-per-hour at the time of the accident.

He was driving a county-owned car.

Opening statements will begin Tuesday in Murfreesboro.

Killings will be tried separately on charges of evidence tampering and filing a false report.

A family member has said a civil lawsuit in the child's death has been settled out of court.
