WACO (November 12, 2012)--Jury selection is set for Tuesday morning in the murder trial of a Waco man who is accused of gunning down another man at the door of the victim's own home.

John Arabie, 33, was indicted on Jan. 18 in connection with the shooting death of David Lloyd Sanders, 74, who was was shot and killed as he looked out a side door after a man rang the doorbell of his home in the 4100 block of Hubby Avenue.

Sanders' wife told police officers at the time of the shooting that a man wearing a black shirt and white pants began ringing the doorbell at around midnight on the night her husband was shot.

She said the man then went around to a side door where her husband was shot in the head as he looked out to see who was outside.

His wife found him bleeding and called 911.

Officers spotted a man matching the description of the gunman a short time later in the 4000 block of West Waco Drive not far from the victim's home.

The man ran from officers, but was arrested as he tried to hide.

Arabie bought a car from Sanders several weeks before the murder, police said, but investigators aren't sure about the reason for the late-night visit or a motive for the shooting.
