BELFAST, Maine (WABI) - Jury selection for a Stockton Springs woman accused of killing her son got underway Monday.

36-year-old Jessica Trefethen is charged with murder for the death of her son, 3-year-old Maddox Williams, in June of last year.

An autopsy found the boy had suffered several injuries including a fractured spine and internal bleeding in his abdomen and brain.
