Jury selection will begin Tuesday in the trial of a Hubbard, Nebraska man accused of first degree murder in the death of his estranged wife in Sioux City in 2015.

29 year old Rogelio Pablo-Morales is charged in the strangulation death of his former wife, 21 year old Margarita Morales.

Investigators say the couple were together in a car in May of 2015 when the alleged crime took place.

Police found her at an Iowa Street home after receiving a report of an unconscious woman due to an assault.

Court documents say Morales told investigators a fight broke out when his wife told him she no longer wanted to be in a relationship and that she was seeing another man.
