Jury selection delayed in trial of ex-Arizona lawmaker

JUNEAU, Alaska (AP) – Jury selection has been delayed in the trial of a former Arizona legislator charged in the shooting death of a man in Alaska in 2016.

Jury selection was to have started Monday. But KTOO Public Media reports the prosecution discovered a second interview between investigators and a key witness, and that the defense had not seen the evidence.

A hearing on the evidence was scheduled for Tuesday.

State Department of Law spokeswoman Maria Bahr says jury selection is tentatively scheduled to start Wednesday, depending on the outcome of Tuesday’s hearing.

Mark Desimone has been charged in the death of Duilio Antonio “Tony” Rosales during a southeast Alaska hunting and fishing trip.

Desimone resigned from the Arizona House in 2008 after being arrested in a domestic dispute with his then-wife.
