(AP) A jury has been seated for the trial of former Dallas Cowboys player Josh Brent, who's accused of killing a practice squad player in a drunken-driving wreck.


Attorneys selected the jury of Dallas County residents on Friday after two days of questioning. Opening statements in the case are scheduled for Monday.


Brent is charged with intoxication manslaughter in the December 2012 death of Jerry Brown in a fatal crash. Police in the Dallas suburb of Irving say Brent was driving with a blood-alcohol level more than twice the legal limit.


If convicted of intoxication manslaughter or manslaughter, Brent could face 20 years in prison. He could also get probation.
