BENTON COUNTY, Ark. (KNWA/KFTA) — Jury selection for Mauricio Torres’ trial has been delayed due to icy conditions, Benton County officials said Monday. All Benton County offices closed on January 30 and were set to do so again on January 31.

He has gone to trial twice for the crime—once in 2016 and again in 2020.

Torres could be facing the death penalty. The latest trial was scheduled to begin on January 30.
