Doster Capital Murder Trial Begins

The capital murder trial of an inmate who escaped twice from the Covington County Jail is underway in Andalusia.

Oscar Doster is accused of killing a man to make his get-away the first time he escaped, along with three others, in November of 2002.

Paul Lemaster was shot to death in his trailer near Gantt the next day.

Lemaster's pick-up truck was also stolen.

Doster was later recaptured.

Jury selection in his capital murder trial began Monday.

Doster will reportedly be held under a 24-hour guard at the Covington County Jail until the trial is over.

He escaped from the jail again last year and managed to elude authorities until he was finally caught in California.
