He's accused of robbing and beating a Buffalo Springs Lake couple in their home. On Monday, jury selection began in Aaron Pugh's trial.
Authorities say the 51-year-old and two other suspects broke into the home in January of 2004, severely beat the couple inside, and stole a substantial amount of cash, credit cards and a rifle. If convicted Pugh faces 25 to 99 years in prison, or life.
Two other suspects still face trial with the same charge, George Franklin and Julie Mackenney. Both Franklin and Pugh also face an aggravated sexual assault charge.
