A jury was selected Saturday for an Abbotsford man who was arrested for the murder of a woman whose body was found beside an Agassiz forestry road in 2010.

Ian Michael Hewitt of Abbotsford was picked up and charged with first degree murder almost a year after Angela Crossman’s body was discovered 2.5 kilometres up Chehalis Lake Forest Road on the way to Elbow Lake in June, 2009.

The trial, to take place in New Westminster, is scheduled to start Feb. 9 and is expected to go until June 30 this year.
