MARATHON COUNTY (WAOW) -- The murder trial of Raul Ponce-Rocha, 23, begins Tuesday.  Investigators say he killed Breanna Schneller in May of 2008. Schneller, 18, was found stabbed to death in her Wausau apartment. Evidence related to the murder was found in a dumpster outside the Rib Mountain restaurant where Ponce-Rocha worked. He was arrested in Dodge County on an immigration hold and was eventually returned to Marathon County where he was charged with the murder. Because of the extensive media coverage related to this case a jury will be selected Tuesday from LaCrosse County. Newsline 9 will be at the selection and bring you the latest on the air and online.
