TERRE HAUTE, Ind. (AP) - A jury has been seated in the trial of one of four adults charged after the death of a 9-year-old Indiana boy who weighed just 15 pounds.

Robin Kraemer faces neglect charges in the death of Cameron Hoopingarner. Opening statements followed jury selection Monday in Vigo Superior Court in Terre Haute.

Authorities say the boy weighed only 15 pounds when officers found him in February at a home near Fontanet, about 60 miles (96 kilometers) west of Indianapolis. An autopsy determined the cause of death was starvation.

The 54-year-old Kraemer was Cameron’s guardian. The other three adults charged in the case have trials set for January and February.
