HURON, S.D. (AP) – A jury of 10 women and three men has been selected for the trial of a South Dakota bar owner accused of raping a 12-year-old girl and two 14-year-olds after serving them booze.

KOKK radio reports that the jury of 12 jurors plus one alternate was selected Wednesday afternoon in the trial of 35-year-old Werner Fajardo (fa-HAHR’-doh).Prosecutors allege Fajardo provided alcohol to the three girls at his El Cuervo bar in Huron and assaulted them. He’s pleaded not guilty.

Opening statements are scheduled for Thursday morning.
