WEST PALM BEACH, Fla.-- One of two suspects in a triple murder case was in court Friday morning as jury selection got underway for his trial.

Christopher Vasata is facing three counts of first-degree murder.

He was the first suspect arrested and charged with the murders of Sean Henry, 26, Brandi El-Salhy, 24, and 20-year-old Kelli Doherty. All three were gunned down at a 2017 Super Bowl party on Mohawk Street in Jupiter.

Vasata is also facing a count of attempted murder for allegedly shooting at the only surviving witness in the case.

He could be sentenced to death if convicted.

The second suspect arrested in the case, Marcus Steward, is also facing the death penalty.
