Jury selection is slated to begin today at the Monroe County Courthouse, where a Centerville woman will be tried on murder and arson charges this week. Selections were slated to be underway at 9 a.m. in Albia. Once the jury is selected and seated, the trial will begin against Barbara Lee Pasa, 47, of Centerville. Authorities charged Pasa last year with first-degree murder and first-degree arson. If convicted, she faces life in prison for the murder charge and an arson conviction is punishable by up to 25 years in prison.
