LEE COUNTY, Fla.- A jury has been chosen in the trial of Luis Gonzalez, the man accused of killing Tia Poklemba in 2008, before fleeing to Mexico for four years.
Investigators said he ran over her twice, and left her to die in on a road in San Carlos Park. A newspaper delivery man found Poklemba in the road. She died minutes later.
Detectives said she met Gonzales at a bar, got in a car with him and then hours later, she was dead. Gonzales took off and traveled to Mexico. The case was featured on America's Most Wanted. Gonzalez was arrested four years later.
The trial is expected to continue over the next three to four days.
