Jury selection continued on Wednesday in the trial of a man accused of shooting a woman in October 2010.

Jury selection began on Tuesday in the first degree murder trial of Christopher Craig Thompson, 34, and continued on Wednesday. 

The Clayton County Sheriff's Office received a 9-1-1 call at around 11:32 a.m. on October 2, 2010 reporting a woman had been shot during a domestic disturbance at 292 Watson Road in Allamakee County.

Allamakee County deputies responded and found Angela Marie Gabel, 40, in the driver's seat of a vehicle.  Deputies say that Gabel died from a gunshot wound to the head.

Deputies say that Thompson then came out of the home holding an eight month old infant, but then went back into the house after making contact with deputies. 

Thompson finally surrendered himself after a stand off and gave the infant to Allamakee County Deputies.

Thompson is facing first degree murder charges.
