ECTOR COUNTY - Jury selection is set to begin August seventh in the trial of a teen charged with murdering a four year old.

Deputies say the 14-year-old intentionally ran over Walker Lumpkin with a four wheeler last year in Ector County.

But that wasn't what killed him.

A week later, Lumpkin was taken to the hospital with head injuries.

He died a few days after that.

The medical examiner says Walter died from blows to the head.

The teen is not a relative but was living in the family's home.

He's charged with murder and injury to a child.

He will be tried as a juvenile.
