Jury selection began Monday in the new trial of Callie Long.

A jury found Long guilty of the August 2003 hit and run death of Brett Walrath. But the decision was later reversed by the Amarillo Court of Appeals saying that Long did not get a fair trial, because jurors weren't given the option to convict her of the lesser charge - failure to stop and render aid.

Long is now on trial for the lesser charge. Potential jury members are being interviewed to determine if Long can get a fair trial in Lubbock.

Intoxication Manslaughter Conviction Overturned
She stands convicted of intoxication manslaughter, but Thursday NewsChannel 11 learned Callie Long has been granted a re-trial by the Amarillo Court of Appeals.
