Three men will be tried by jury, starting Wednesday, after they were charged with murder in the 2015 death of Reno Lee.

Daniel Theodore, Bronson Gordon and Andrew Bellegarde have pleaded not guilty to first-degree murder charges.

Lee, 34, was Regina's third homicide victim that year. His body was found near Balcarres, but it was determined he died in Regina.

The three men have also pleaded not guilty to charges of committing an indignity to a human body. It's alleged they dismembered and beheaded Lee's body.

More than 500 people gathered at the Conexus Arts Centre in Regina for jury selection Monday morning. Jury selection will continue Tuesday morning. 

The trial, beginning Wednesday, is expected to last six weeks.
