The jury was selected Monday afternoon in Wilcox County for the trial of Bo Dukes, who's accused of helping cover up Grinstead's death. 

Dukes is charged with concealing Grinstead's death, hindering apprehension or punishment of a criminal, and lying to Georgia Bureau of Investigation agents about his involvement with the case during a June 2016 interview. 

He already faces charges in Ben Hill County where he is accused of helping hide Grinstead's body in a pecan grove.

Grinstead was last seen the night of October 22, 2005, when she attended a beauty pageant and barbecue in Fitzgerald, Georgia. Investigators said she went home to Ocilla and was never seen again.

Two days later, her co-workers at Irwin County High School, where she taught, called 911 when she didn't show up for work. Police said when they got to Grinstead's home to investigate, they found no signs of a struggle and her purse, keys and cell phone were still there.

She was 30-years-old at the time of her disappearance.
