Trial to begin in slaying of Rockwell City officer

CLARION (AP) — Jury selection is scheduled to begin Tuesday for a 33-year-old man charged with killing a Rockwell City police officer.

Corey Trott is charged with first-degree murder in the slaying on Sept. 13 of Jamie Buenting. Prosecutors say Trott shot Buenting during a standoff at Trott’s house. Officers were trying to arrest Trott after an assault on his mother.

The trial was moved to Wright County at the request of defense attorneys.

In June Rockwell City dedicated a park to Buenting.
