Trial getting underway in OSU student's murder

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) -- Jury selection is underway for the trial of a man suspected of kidnapping, raping and killing an Ohio State student.

Defendant Brian Golsby could face the death penalty if convicted in the murder of 21-year-old Reagan Tokes.

The 30-year-old Golsby has pleaded not guilty to charges, including aggravated murder.

A judge says the process of choosing jurors could span this week.

The judge has so far declined a request by Golsby's attorneys to move the trial away from Columbus.

The defense has argued Golsby can't get a fair trial in Franklin County because of publicity about the case.

Tokes' body was found in February 2017 at a park in Grove City.

Police say they matched Golsby's DNA evidence from Tokes' car.
