ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (KRQE) – Jury selection is underway for a man accused of stabbing an Albuquerque homeowner during a car burglary. Police say Tyler Hernandez and Craig Whited were breaking into cars in December 2015 in Four Hills when 55-year-old William McKinley confronted them. Whited claimed that it was Hernandez who stabbed McKinley after a fight. Whited eventually pleaded guilty to lesser charges. Hernandez is still charged with murder. The trial is scheduled to last all week.
