Jury selection is underway in Texas County for the father of two young men that prosecutors say was a key figure in the 2006 death of a teenager.
Kurt Geise (a,) and his son's, Nathanael "Tommy" and Andrew, were originally charged with second degree murder in 2006 for the death of 19 year-old Travis Walker.
However, shortly before Andrew's murder trial was to begin last October he entered into a plea agreement to assist Texas County prosecutor Mike Anderson with the state's murder cases against his father and brother.
According to investigators, Walker, Brummit and three friends went to the Geise home in rural Texas County looking for the driver of a white Dodge Intrepid that attempted to run Brummit, his girlfriend and their baby off of the road early in the evening of March, 19, 2006.
Prosecutors say that Kurt Geise allegedly pulled Robert Brummitt from the car and held him at gunpoint while his son Andrew (below) beat him with an aluminum bat.
Walker was also beaten by Andrew Geise before Nathanael "Tommy" Geise fired the fatal shotgun blast that killed him, according to prosecutors.
According to witnesses, the Geise's would not let them call 911 get help for Walker until it was too late.
As part of Andrew's plea agreement, prosecutors dropped the murder charges against the man who is now 19, and replaced it with a second degree assault charge. He was sentenced to seven years in prison and is expected to be one of the first witnesses on the stand for the state in the trial against his father this week.
Nathanael "Tommy" Geise (above) pleaded guilty to reduced charges in March as well. He was sentenced to 12 years in prison for voluntary manslaughter and 3 years for armed criminal action. Those sentences are to be served consecutively (one after the other.)
