The trial for a man accused of driving drunk and killing a woman three years ago is underway.

Jury selection began today at the Mesa County Courthouse in the vehicular homicide case against Jade Huskey.

Colorado State Patrol says in February of 2006, he and Molly Gomez were driving along I–70 at more than 100 miles an hour when they went off the road and into a guardrail.

Both were thrown out of the car and Gomez was killed.

Throughout the investigation Huskey has maintained that he was not the one behind the wheel.

His trial is set to last nine days.
