Jury selection began this morning [Aug 13] for a Southampton man charged with the powerboat death of New Zealand visitor Mary McKee during last year’s America’s Cup.

In December of last year, Andrew Lake pled not guilty to unlawfully killing Mrs McKee, 62, on June 1, 2017.

At that time he also pled not guilty with causing bodily harm to Arthur McKee, Mrs McKee’s husband, via driving a power craft in a manner deemed dangerous to other users and causing grievous bodily harm to British tourist Charlie Watson.

While investigating the crash, police said a 17 foot boat collided with the 9 foot Zodiac inflatable which was carrying Mrs McKee and two others.

The gallery of the courtroom was packed with potential jurors for the trial which is set to begin this week.
