Jury selection resumes in deadly NAU shooting trial

- Jury selection has resumed in the trial of a Northern Arizona University student accused of a deadly campus shooting.

Steven Jones is charged with first-degree murder and several counts of aggravated assault in the 2015 shooting. Jones is accused of killing Colin Brough and wounding three others at a fraternity party.

Jones claims the shooting was in self-defense, and he has appeared emotional in previous court appearances. Jones previously faced a $2 million bond, but a Coconino County judge has since ordered him to be released to the custody of his parents, under the strict supervision of the Maricopa County Probation Office.

The same judge who ordered Jones' release to his parents also ruled that key statements made by Jones after the shooting were not admissible, as a part of his self-defense claim. 

The trial could start as early as this week, but no later than April 12.
