ROGERSVILLE (WATE) - Jury selection got underway Monday afternoon for a young man accused of killing his father, a Greeneville police officer.

The trial for Ethan Self was moved from Greene County to Hawkins County.

Senior Judge Jon Kerry Blackwood is presiding after the former judge recused himself.

The body of Sgt. Roger Self was discovered in March 2010 after he didn't show up for his evening shift.

At the time, investigators said they believe Self's son shot him while he slept.
