DALLAS (AP) — A man who evaded arrest for over 12 years after being accused of fatally shooting his two teen daughters in a taxi parked near a Dallas-area hotel is set to go on trial this week.
Jury selection was set to begin Monday in the capital murder trial of 65-year-old Yaser Said.
He is accused of killing 18-year-old Amina Said and 17-year-old Sarah Said on New Year’s Day in 2008.
The sisters had been shot multiple times in the taxi parked near a hotel in the Dallas suburb of Irving.
Sarah Said managed to call 911 using a cellphone, telling the operator that her father shot her and that she was dying.
Yaser Said has denied killing his daughters.
