Testimony started last week in the trial of a man accused of fatally shooting an Upton County Deputy in 2013.

Gary David Green, 56, who is charged with capital murder, is being tried in Nueces County. He was arrested in October 2013, following a shootout at a Mc-Camey convenience store.

Upton County Deputy Billy “Bubba” Kennedy Jr. died at the store in the shootout with Green.

Jury selection for the case began in April. Testimony started on June 12. More than 1,000 potential jurors were summoned for the case.

The trial was moved across the state to Corpus Christi on a change of venue.

The case is being prosecuted by 112th District Attorney Laurie English before visiting judge Tessa Herr, who is from Bexar County. Green is represented by attorneys William Boyles and Robert Cowie.
