Jury selection in the retrial of Elias Wanatee of Sioux City on a charge of first degree murder will begin Monday in Council Bluffs.

Judge Duane Hoffmeyer issued a change of venue order to move the trial to Pottawattamie County following a mistrial in the case last December when a Woodbury County jury failed to reach a verdict in the trial of Wanatee.

Wanatee is charged in the fatal stabbing of 50 year old Vernon Mace outside of a West 1st Street home last February 7th.
