OKLAHOMA CITY -- Trial is underway for the man accused of killing another man after an alleged road rage incident.

David Bloebaum is accused in the 2012 shooting death of Jasen Yousif.

The jury was seated Tuesday evening, a group of three men and nine women. The fate of David Bloebaum will be in their hands.

Attorneys for the state and the defense questioned potential jurors all day Tuesday to finally narrow down the panel to twelve.

This week the state will lay out its case against Bloebaum.

He's charged with murder in the 2012 shooting death of 29 year old Jasen Yousif.

It was around rush hour that September afternoon when witnesses say they saw Bloebaum and Yousif driving aggressively on the Kilpatrick turnpike.

That led to the deadly confrontation in the Target parking lot near Penn and Memorial.

Court papers stated Bloebaum admitted shooting Yousif at the scene, but defense attorneys say Bloebaum acted in self-defense.

The victim allegedly approached Bloebaum with a knife before Bloebaum shot him five times, twice in the front and three times in the back.

NewsChannel 4 spoke with Jasen's mother, Annie Yousif, last week.

She thinks Bloebaum went way too far and wants justice for her son.

The trial resumes at 9:00am Wednesday. If convicted, Bloebaum faces up to life in prison.
