DETROIT (WWJ)- Jury selection began Tuesday in the case of Jeffrey Pyne. He’s the former high school valedictorian and University of Michigan biology student who is charged with bludgeoning his mother to death in the garage of the family’s Highland Township home in May 2011.

Pyne is charged with first-degree murder in the death of Ruth Pyne, who had a history of serious mental illness and sometimes assaulted her son and his sister. Nine months before she was killed, she was jailed for attempting to strangle her son.

If convicted, Pyne faces life in prison without parole.
