Less than a week after a jury convicted former pastor Tracy Burleson in his wife's murder, his alleged mistress is on trial.

Jury selection began Tuesday in the trial of Tyonne Palmer. Investigators believe she was at center of a love triangle involving Burleson and his son, William Fuller.

Burleson was convicted last week of capital murder in his wife's death. Prosecutors say Palmer and Burleson manipulated Fuller into committing the crime by shooting Burleson's wife.

Fuller has yet to go on trial.
