Trial to begin in Vegas Strip dancer murder case

Jury selection is due to begin Monday for the murder trial of a former Cirque du Soleil performer accused of strangling and dismembering his ex-girlfriend -- a dancer at another Las Vegas Strip resort.

It's been almost 3 1/2 years since Jason Omar Griffith was arrested in January 2011.

Police reported finding body parts of 31-year-old Deborah Flores Narvaez in concrete-filled containers in an empty Las Vegas home. She had failed to show up Dec. 13, 2010, to perform in the burlesque show "Fantasy" at the Luxor hotel-casino.

Griffith is now 35. He has pleaded not guilty.

His lawyers and his mother maintain Griffith had a volatile relationship with Flores Narvaez. They say she had a history of aggression against Griffith and other former boyfriends.
