WICHITA, Kan. (AP) - Jury selection is scheduled to begin in the second trial of a man charged with murder after a woman was killed during a police chase in Wichita.

Greg Berry, 33, was convicted of first-degree murder in August 2005. But the Kansas Supreme Court overturned the conviction, saying the jury should been able to consider lesser charges.

The Wichita Eagle reports (http://bit.ly/NtIUFE ) jury selection for the second trial is scheduled to start Monday in Sedgwick County.

Prosecutors allege Berry was fleeing from a Sedgwick County sheriff's deputy when he caused a crash that killed Vicki Brown, 55, of Haysville.

Investigators said Berry ran into a nearby home but was arrested after one of the occupants called 911.
