GRANTS, N.M. - Jury selection in the trial for the co-leader of a paramilitary religious sect is expected to begin Monday morning.


Deborah Green was one of the members of the Aggressive Christianity Missions Training Corps arrested in Cibola County during a raid in August of last year.

Investigators had been looking into the death of a boy on the Fence Lake Compound and located 11 children there.

Authorities believed the group was hiding the children because they did not have birth certificates.

Green is facing a number of charges including child abuse, sexual abuse, tampering with evidence and conspiracy to commit tampering with evidence.

Her trial is expected to last about three weeks.

The suspected leader of the group, Peter Green, faces 100 counts of criminal sexual penetration of a child. His trial is set to begin in November.
