Jury selection underway in trial of alleged killer

ALLENTOWN, Pa. - A murder trial is underway in Lehigh County for a man accused of brutally killing his girlfriend.

Jury selection started Monday in the trial of Jonathan Nunez, of Allentown.

Nunez got into a fight with 20-year-old Kimberly Cardona last July in a wooded area in Salisbury Township, police said.

Nunez beat Cardona unconscious and then left her in the woods while he went to an emergency room to be treated for a cut on his hand, investigators said.

Nunez later returned to the scene and slit Cardona's throat when he saw that she was still alive, officials said.

Nunez later admitted to the killing.
