(Bartlesville-AP) -- Jury selection began Wednesday for the trial of a Bartlesville man charged with a 20-year-old murder.

Leotis Hall, also known as Leotis Wooten, is charged with first-degree murder in the May 1983 death of Dorthea Stanford.

Prosecutors say DNA evidence links Hall to the crime.

Authorities say the investigation into Stanford's death was revived while Hall was in prison for another crime and allegedly told another inmate he killed Stanford.
