Second trial opening for McHenry County murder

Jury selection is underway for a man who faces a second trial for the murder of a teenage boy.

Mario Casciaro is charged with first degree murder, for the death of 17-year-old Brian Carrick.

The first trial ended with a hung jury and a mistrial.

Casciaro was released and went on to earn a college degree.

Carrick disappeared just before Christmas in 2002, but his body was never found.

He and Casciaro worked at the same grocery store in Johnsburg, a small town in McHenry County.

Prosecutors say Carrick sold drugs for Casciaro and owed him money.

They say Carrick died after Casciaro had someone else fight him over the money.
