Six jurors have been selected in Northampton County in the case of a man accused of killing a police officer.

George Hitcho Junior is accused of killing Officer Robert Lasso of the Freemansburg Police Department.

According to state police, Lasso was shot and killed in the line of duty last August while responding to a disturbance call at Hitcho’s home in Northampton County.

Jury selection began Monday in Northampton County.

Prosecutors said they will seek the death penalty if Hitcho is convicted.
