Jury selection is expected to begin this week in the case of a Seneca County man charged with killing his son to collect insurance money.

Earlier this month, Karl Karlsen's attorneys tried to keep prosecutors from using incriminating statements that he made to his wife and to police against him in the trial. Those motions were denied.

Karlsen denies killing his 23-year-old son, Levi, who died in 2008 when the truck he was working on fell on him.
