FOREST CITY, N.C. (AP) — A man charged with killing his wife at the dog kennel she ran in Rutherford County is getting ready to stand trial.

The Daily Courier of Forest City reports (http://bit.ly/11sz9Av ) that jury selection should begin Monday in the first-degree murder trial of 61-year-old Michael McCraw.

Authorities say McCraw shot and killed his estranged wife, 58-year-old Theresa McCraw in December 2011.

Investigators say a customer dropping a dog off at Theresa McCraw's kennel found her body.

Authorities arrested Michael McCraw the next day. They say his estranged wife filed an order of protection against him about six weeks before the killing.
