Prosecutors and defense lawyers began picking juries Monday in two Sedgwick County murder trials.

Jason Jones, 38, is charged with first-degree murder in the death of Shawn Lindsey, 34, whose body was found Jan. 16, 2013, by surveyors in a field near K-96 and Hillside. Prosecutors said Jones and two other men injected Lindsey with a lethal dose of meth to settle a debt. If convicted, Jones could face a Hard 50 prison sentence. District Judge Bruce Brown will preside at the trial.

In the other case, Kyle A. Carter, 31, is charged in the Sept. 8 death of Carl A. Cooper, 32, who was stabbed to death in College Hill Park after a resident saw him breaking into her car. Carter was one of two men who were visiting the woman when the break-in occurred, and police said they confronted Cooper after chasing him into the park. District Judge Warren Wilbert is presiding at that trial.
