Jury selection is scheduled for July 20 in St. Joseph for Bobby Bourne, Junior, for the kidnapping and killing of 12-year-old Audrianna Horton.
Her body was found near Lockwood.
Prosecutors say Bourne took the girl from a park in Golden City in 2013 to get back at her father.
He’d been having an affair with Bourne’s wife while Bourne was in jail.
The jury will hear the case August 6 in Barton County.
The prosecution is seeking the death penalty.
