BOULDER, Colo. – A jury of 12 and four alternates was seated Wednesday in the trial of a man accused of killing and dismembering his ex-girlfriend.

Opening statements in the Adam Densmore trial are expected to begin at 9 a.m. Thursday in a Boulder County courtroom. Jury selection took two days after beginning Monday.

Densmore faces first-degree murder, tampering with a deceased human body, abuse of a corpse and tampering with evidence charges. He pleaded not guilty last September.

Densmore is accused of killing 25-year-old Ashley Mead in February 2017 in Boulder, then scattering Mead’s body as he drove to his parents’ house in Louisiana, then up to Oklahoma, where he was caught and found with his and Mead’s year-old daughter.

The trial is expected to last three weeks.
