A jury was selected Thursday in the trial of a man accused in the drunk driving deaths of five children. Chanton Jenkins was the father of three of those children. He is charged with five counts of intoxication manslaughter.

Police say he was drunk when he drove into a rain swollen drainage ditch in north Houston over a year ago. The children killed ranged in age from one year to 11 years old.

Opening arguments will begin on Monday.
