Guam - Jury trial and selection against Allan Agababa began today.

Agababa is accused of murdering his mother Shelly Bernstein who was found dead in her Tamuning apartment back in August 2013. Her death was a result of blunt force trauma to the head.

Prosecutors allege that prior to Bernstein's murder, Agababa made inquiries with her employer about her death benefits.

According to court documents, the government believes it has a strong case against the defendant thanks to key witness, bobby hall. Hall is anticipated to testify that Agababa stated he had an inheritance issue and wanted to know where he could get a gun with a silencer or chemicals. Although defense filed a motion in opposition of hall's testimony because he's believed to be a convicted felon, the court ruled that it's up to the jury to decide a witnesses' credibility and will allow hall to take the stand.

Opening statements are anticipated to take place on Thursday.
