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.
