LEXINGTON COUNTY, SC (WIS) -

A Midlands woman accused of fatally shooting her estranged husband and then trying to kill herself will go on trial this week in Lexington County.

Authorities say Shellie Davis, 41, shot and killed Jermaine Davis in September 2011 at Davis' Quail Hollow apartment in West Columbia.

After the shooting, Davis drove to a friend's home near Charlotte and shot herself, investigators say.

Jury selection began Monday morning.
