BUFFALO, N.Y. (WKBW) Jury selection has begun in the murder trial of 26-year old Matthew Kuzdzal.

Kuzdzal was arrested in September 2013 after police say he caused the injuries that killed 5-year old Eain Brooks.

An autopsy showed the little boy died from blunt-force trauma to the head.

Prosecutors say it happened while Kuzdzal was babysitting the child at his girlfriend's, and the boys mother's, home on Albany Street in Buffalo.

Jury selection is scheduled for two days with opening statements taking place on Monday morning.
