ST. ALBANS, Vt. (AP) - The trial is beginning for a 31-year-old man charged with gunning down a woman during what police called an incident of road rage nearly two years ago.

WCAX-TV (https://bit.ly/1Je4GWn ) reports that jury selection was scheduled to start Monday and testimony on Tuesday in the second-degree murder trial of Matthew Webster of Swanton.

Police say Webster ran a red light in St. Albans and was nearly struck by 30-year-old Anna Alger’s car on Sept. 25, 2013. Alger got out and was yelling as she approached Webster. He told police he got scared as she charged “like a six-point buck coming up over a hill” and he fired his gun. Police found 11 shell casings on the ground.

Webster told police he had intended to kill himself, but the gun didn’t fire.
