GRAYSON COUNTY -- The trial of a man accused of killing a Grayson County deputy is now underway.

Rickey Stanley, of Whitesboro, is charged with first degree murder, intoxication manslaughter of a peace officer and aggravated assault with a deadly weapon. He has pleaded not guilty.

Dash camera video from inside a police cruiser shows the high-speed chase that ended on Highway 82 and Bethany Road in April 2013.

It was the scene that Grayson County Deputy Chad Key was directing traffic around when the sheriff's office says he was hit and killed.

"He was hit by a pick-up truck. He was taken to Texoma Medical Center where he later died at 11:45pm from the injuries he received from the accident," Grayson County Sheriff's Lieutenant Rickey Wheeler explained in April, shortly after the accident.

Monday, the trial began for the man allegedly behind the wheel of the vehicle that ran into Deputy Key.

Prosecutors say Rickey Stanley was drunk at the time.

Court records show he's been charged with driving while intoxicated at least three times.

Monday morning, the process of sitting a jury began.

Defense attorneys and the Grayson County District Attorney's Office questioned dozens of potential jurors inside the Grayson county courthouse.

They were asked about their ability to be objective including how they feel about drunk driving and alcohol, specifically whether they believe alcoholism is a disease or a choice.

Monday afternoon, 13 people were chosen to sit on the jury and opening statements began.

Defense attorneys declined to comment on the case until after the trial.

The trial resumes at 8:30am on Tuesday.
