KANSAS CITY, Kan. (AP) - Jury selection is scheduled to get underway in the trial of two men charged with trying to kill a Wyandotte County deputy.

Deputy Scott Wood was shot seven times last March when three armed men tried to rob a convenience store where he had stopped after work.

The Kansas City Star reports (https://bit.ly/1ZXgPx6 ) jury selection is scheduled to begin Monday in the trial of 25-year-old Dyron M. King, and 36-year-old Cecil D. Meggerson, who are charged with attempted capital murder of a law enforcement officer.

A third defendant, 19-year-old Charles Bowser, faces the same charge, but his trial’s delayed.

The sheriff’s office says Wood is still recovering from gunshot wounds to the jaw, shoulder, abdomen and lower chest.
