Strip club murder trial to begin March 19 in Texas

Opening statements in the trial of Richard Lee Tabler, 27, who is charged with four counts of murder in connection with the November 2004 murders of two owners and two dancers of the Teazers strip club in Killeen, Texas, is scheduled for March 19 in Bell County District Court.
Jury selection in the case began Feb. 19 and could take a while. Tabler faces the death penalty so potential jurors not only had to fill out lengthy questionnaires, but each has to undergo questioning for 45 to 90 minutes, according to an article in the Killeen Daily Herald.

The other man charged with murder in the case, 2004 East Newton High School graduate Timothy Doan Payne, will stand trial at the conclusion of the Tabler trial.
