Jury selection started on Monday for a Killeen man accused of raping a woman two and a half years ago.
As of Monday afternoon, jury selection was continuing for the trial of James Allen Brickley Jr., 33, according to Bell County District Attorney Henry Garza.
The case is set to be heard in the 426th Judicial District Court of Judge Fancy Jezek. Brickley was released on a $60,000 bond and was not listed in the Bell County Jail, according to jail and court records. He is charged with aggravated sexual assault, a first-degree felony.
Killeen police arrested Brickley in 2017 after a woman accused him of entering into her home in Killeen on March 6, 2017, according to the arrest affidavit.
The woman told police that he threatened her with a knife, bound her with shoelaces, drove her to a wooded area, and threatened to both drown her and hit her with a rock before he raped her, police said.
