HOUSTON – Jury selection was under way Monday in the trial of a man accused of trying to kill a Bellaire socialite.

Damian Flores is being tried on unrelated drug charges.

A jury couldn’t reach a verdict last year in the attempted capital murder of Yvonne Stern.

Prosecutors claimed Flores shot Stern in a murder-for-hire plot orchestrated by Stern’s husband and his mistress.

The mistress, Michelle Gaiser, is already serving time for her role.

Jeffrey Stern is set to go on trial in July.
