ATLANTA — Jury selection began Dec. 9 in the trial against a Milton man accused of murdering his stepson.

Eric B. Brandon, 48, is charged with murder, felony murder, aggravated assault and possession of a firearm during the commission of a felony in connection with the shooting death of 16-year-old Alexander Koser.

Milton Police discovered the teen's body inside his Genesis Way home on February 12, 2012.

Koser, an Alpharetta High School student, had been fatally shot in the chest with a 12-gauge shotgun, which was recovered near his body. Brandon called Milton Police following the shooting.

Brandon was arrested at the scene and indicted the following May.

Brandon, who is battling cancer, worked for UPS and has lived in Milton for 10 years. His Facebook page says he joined the army fresh out of high school and served until 1990 with several paratrooper battalions. He attended North Dakota State University-Bottineau and studied forestry, working six seasons as a park ranger in North Dakota. He later studied at Georgia Southern University.

Fulton County Superior Court Judge Henry Newkirk is presiding over court proceedings.

    Needless to say, there is never any justification for murder, but the article didn't list any motive, or reason for the shooting. Was Brandon cleaning his shotgun and on an unexplained impulse decided to shoot his stepson? Was there bad blood between the two? Did Brandon offer any reason for the shooting? Is there something you're not telling us?
