Jury selection is slated to start Monday in the trial of Wayne Ellison Jr. and Christopher Kesterson, according to the Finger Lakes Times.
The two men are charged with second-degree murder and weapon possession relating to the fatal shooting of Texan William Waugh in September 2022.
The incident occurred in Waterloo near the Ontario County border.
Authorities believe a preceding bar altercation may have sparked the deadly confrontation that took place around 1 a.m. on Route 96.
Waugh, who was visiting Waterloo for a wedding and had formerly lived there, was pronounced dead after being transported to Geneva General Hospital.
