BOZEMAN, Mont. (AP) - A trial is scheduled to start this week in the case of a Big Sky man charged with negligent homicide in the April 2015 death of his girlfriend.

Prosecutors say 28-year-old Kerri McKinney suffered fatal injuries when 33-year-old David Hughes drove his truck away while she was trying to get into the passenger door during an argument. Defense attorneys argue that McKinney was negligent in trying to get into the truck while Hughes was driving away.

The Bozeman Daily Chronicle reports (bit.ly/2feeUUp) the trial is scheduled to start with jury selection on Monday.

District Judge John Brown has scheduled five days for the trial.
