Jury selection is scheduled to start Monday morning in a new trial for Lubbock realtor Callie Long.

In 2005, a jury convicted long of intoxication manslaughter for the hit and run death of Brett Walrath in August of 2003. The Amarillo Court of Appeals reversed that decision saying Long did not get a fair trial because jurors were not given the option to convict on the lesser charge of failure to stop and render aid.

In January, a judge ruled the new trial would stay in Lubbock, but added jurors will be given a special questionnaire due to extensive media coverage.

Long is now on trial for the lesser charge.  Failure to stop and render aid is punishable by up to five years in prison.
