National attention is about to turn to Sawyer County this week for the trial of Chai Vang.

He's the Minnesota man accused of killing six hunters and wounding two others in Wisconsin's Northwoods after an alleged hunting dispute.
Vang's entire trial will be broadcast live by cable network, Court T.V.

The 36-year-old has pleaded not guilty, and says he acted in self-defense.

Jury selection will begin Thursday in Dane County. Testimony is expected to start Saturday in Hayward.
