A Lexington man accused of beating his wife to death spent most of Friday in a Fayette County courtroom.

Donald Southworth attended the last hearing before the scheduled start of his trial.

Police say the 48-year-old savagely beat his wife, Umi.

She died in June of 2010 after being found outside the home she shared with her husband and her daughter.

Jury selection in Southworth's trial is set to begin on Monday.
