BRIDGEPORT - Jury selection has begun in the retrial of a Bridgeport man accused of killing and dismembering his girlfriend.

The first trial for Jermaine Richards ended in a mistrial last year.

Richards is charged with murder in the 2013 killing of 20-year-old Alyssiah Wiley.

Her partial remains were found in a wooded area in Trumbull about a month after she was last seen with Richards outside her dorm.

The trial is tentatively expected to begin the first week of March.
