Another man went on trial Monday for the murder of Tulsa businessman Neal Sweeney.

Jury selection began late Monday afternoon in Fred Shield's trial.

Shields is accused of helping plan and carry out the September 2008 murder-for-hire of Sweeney.

Just last month, a jury convicted triggerman Terrico Bethel.

The plan started with Mohammed Aziz, who has already pleaded guilty to soliciting murder.

Another suspect, Alonzo Johnson, goes on trial in December.
