TERRELL CO., GA (WALB) -

The trial of a Florida man accused of murdering his wife began this week in Terrell County.

Christopher Estep is being tried on charges of felony murder and aggravated assault for the death of his wife, Sandra Annmarie Morales Estep, 43.

Authorities said Estep was killed when a vehicle driven by her husband struck her in September 2016.

Prosecutors believe it was intentional.

Estep's attorney T. Wilbur Gamble said it was a "tragic accident, not a crime."

The couple was staying at a hunting camp off Catherine Lane in Terrell County when Estep died.

The trial started with jury selection on Monday.
