EUREKA-The trial for double murder suspect Bodhi Tree began Monday morning as both the prosecution and defense ironed out the details of how the trial will proceed.

Tree entered the courtroom wearing a lavender dress shirt, tucked into black slacks instead of an orange jump suit that he wears while in custody. Tree's defense requested that he dress in street clothes for the trial.

The prosecution and defense agreed on a number of motions filed that involved how the case will continue.

Jury selection has begun and is expected to be finished in the upcoming weeks. Opening statements for the trial are expected to start in mid April.
