Jury selection gets underway this week for a Newark man accused of killing a transgender lingerie model.

Alrashim Chambers, 25, is charged with murder and bias intimidation.

His alleged accomplice is expected to testify against him as the state's star witness.

Prosecutors say Chambers shot Victoria Carmen White just hours after they met at a nightclub in Irvington.

The bias charge alleges that Chambers killed White after discovering her gender identity.
