A jury from La Crosse has been chosen to hear the trial of Raul Ponce-Rocha.

The 12 member jury, with one alternate, will hear the trial beginning January 5 in Marathon County. Another alternate has been excused due to a death in the family.

Prosecutors say Ponce-Rocha murdered 18-year-old Breanna Schneller in her Wausau apartment in May 2009.

An out of county jury was chosen because of pre-trial publicity.

NewsChannel 7 will have extensive coverage of this case in the coming days.
