Jury selection in Bowie State murder trial scheduled for Thursday

Jury selection in the trial of a Bowie State University student accused of fatally stabbing her roommate is scheduled to begin this week.

WJLA reports that jury selection will begin Thursday in the trial of Alexis Simpson, who is charged with first-degree murder in the September, 2011 death of 18-year-old Dominique Frazier.

Prosecutors and police have said that Simpson stabbed Frazier after the two women got into a fight over music playing on an iPod.

Simpson and Frazier, both Bowie State students at the time, shared a suite in a residence hall on campus.
