(CNN) -

Jury selection continues today in a Burlington teen's death. It may be prosecuted as a federal hate crime.

Jorge Sanders-Galvez faces murder charges. He's charged in 16-year-old Kedarie Johnson's death. Johnson was shot and killed last year.

Prosecutors believe the murder is connected to the fact that Johnson identified as both male and female.

The trial could last two weeks.

The U.S. Department of Justice has launched a separate investigation.
