~ NEWTON, Iowa (AP) - Jury selection is expected to begin Tuesday for a 25-year-old central Iowa man accused of killing his infant son more than two years ago.
 
     Joseph Olea is charged with first-degree murder and child abuse resulting in death. His son, Kaiden Olea, died Jan. 15, 2012, after being taken to a hospital in Newton on Jan. 10, 2012. The Iowa State Medical Examiner's Office says the boy died of blunt force injuries to his head and neck.
 
     The boy's mother, 26-year-old Chelsea Miller, is charged with child endangerment resulting in death. Prosecutors say she left Kaiden in his father's care despite knowing that Joseph Olea had violent tendencies. She's pleaded not guilty, and her trial is scheduled to begin March 5.
