BOSTON, May 13 (UPI) -- Prosecutors in the trial of Mark Kerrigan say they'll call his sister, Olympic skater Nancy Kerrigan, to testify about her father's health before his death.

Jury selection began Friday in the manslaughter trial of Mark Kerrigan, who allegedly grabbed his 70-year-old father Daniel by the neck during an altercation in their Massachusetts home just before the elder Kerrigan died in January 2010, WFXT-TV, Boston, reported.

Prosecutors say the death was a result of the fight.

The Kerrigan family, including Nancy, has spoken out in support of Mark, insisting the elder Kerrigan's death was caused by a longstanding heart condition.
