STEPHENS COUNTY, TEXAS (KAUZ-TV) -

More than two years after Lean Martin's remains were found on a property just outside of Graham, Texas, one of the men accused of her murder  standing trial is found not guilty.

23-year-old Martin went missing on May 29, 2015. She was last seen at E.C.'s Auto Repair in Graham. 

In September 2015, Elton 'E.C.' Carroll Blair along with Billy Ray Minkley Jr. and Ross Earl Hellams were all charged with murder.

On Monday, jury selection for Blair began in a Breckenridge courtroom. According to the Graham Leader, six men and women were chosen for the trial in Stephens County.

More than 90 potential jurors were cut down to 14 during jury selection on Monday. A change of venue was approved earlier this year by 90th District Judge, Stephen Bristow, to ensure Blair received a fair trial outside of Young County.
