GLOUCESTER, Va. (AP) - A Gloucester County couple whose daughter was found in a makeshift cage is going on trial.

Media outlets report that jury selection began Tuesday in the trial of Brian and Shannon Gore. They're both charged with malicious wounding and child abuse. About 175 potential jurors will be interviewed for the trial in Gloucester County Circuit Court.

Police say the couple's daughter was 6 when sheriff's deputies discovered her in April 2011 while investigating a burglary report. The deputies reported that the girl was naked, malnourished and covered in her own feces.
