Jury Selection Begins in Burning of Tourist

August 24, 1993| Associated Press

WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. — Prospective jurors in the trial of two men accused of setting a tourist ablaze said Monday they had heard little about the incident other than that a black man had been set afire in Tampa.

Jury selection began Monday for Mark Kohut, 27, and Charles Rourk, 33, on charges of attempted first-degree murder, robbery and kidnaping in the New Year's Day attack on Christopher Wilson. Wilson, a stock brokerage clerk from New York City, was burned over 40% of his body.
