(WBNG Binghamton) Jury selection begins Tuesday in Norwich for the murder trial of Ganesh "Remy" Ramsaran, who's accused of killing his wife Jennifer in December 2012.

Remy Ramsaran called police to report his wife missing nearly two years ago, after she reportedly went shopping in Syracuse.

The next day, Jennifer's phone was discovered in Plymouth, N.Y. Four days later, her minivan was found abandoned in Norwich. Months later, in February, her naked body was found on the side of the road in Pharsalia.

Police took Remy Ramsaran into custody in May of 2013, after Chenango County Sheriff Ernest Cutting said Jennifer's autopsy results pointed to her husband.

He pleaded not guilty to the second-degree murder charges.

Remy Ramsaran admitted to a one-time romantic encounter with his running partner that his wife was unaware of.

In March of this year, both his attorneys requested to be dismissed due to money issues.

An affidavit said Remy Ramsaran owed at least $72,000 for attorney and expert fees. In the affidavit, Remy Ramsaran reportedly brought in a new attorney from Hackensack, N.J. to work on the case.
