LAWTON, OK (KSWO) - Jury selection is scheduled to get underway Tuesday in the re-trial of a man accused of a murder in Lawton.

A Comanche County judge declared a mistrial back in January in Robert Long's case. A jury could not reach a verdict after testimony wrapped. Long is charged with first-degree murder for shooting and killing Johnny Allen in a Lawton motel in March of 2014.
