Jury selection is scheduled to get underway today – Monday – in the first-degree murder trial of former Allstate insurance agent Shawn Smoot.
He’s accused of killing Brooke Nicole Morris on Oct. 15, 2011.
Morris worked for Smoot at his Allstate office in Knoxville. The two were also reportedly romantically involved.
It’s been more than four years since a Roane County grand jury indicted Smoot for her murder.
