TULSA, Okla. (AP) - Jury selection is set to begin Monday in the trial of a Tulsa woman accused of pushing her husband to his death from their high-rise apartment.

Amber Hilberling is charged with second-degree murder in the 2011 death of Joshua Hilberling, who died after falling from the 25th floor window to the roof of a parking garage 17 floors below.

Prosecutors allege Amber Hilberling pushed her husband; she says the apartment had dangerously thin windows and her husband fell accidentally.

Amber Hilberling rejected a plea deal offered by prosecutors last week, opting to go on trial instead. She faces 10 years to life in prison if convicted of second-degree murder.
