DALHART, Texas (KFDA) - The murder trial for a Dalhart woman accused of killing her 65-year-old father and hiding his body in an incinerator begins today.

Camilla Frazier-Tidrow is facing a first-degree murder charge in the death of her father, Joel Frazier.

Frazier went missing in the summer of 2017, and his body was found at a Dalhart meat processing plant in November of 2017.

A jury was chosen for her trial yesterday afternoon.

Frazier-Tidrow is being represented by a court-appointed attorney, Joe Marr Wilson, whose office is in Amarillo.

Jurors heard testimony from 11 witnesses who helped paint a picture of how the Frazier family treated each other.

Camilla’s sister told the jury they both had a bad relationship with Joel.

Judge Enns will hear the trial in the 69th District Court at Frank Phillips College Rahll Campus.

At least two witnesses testified Camilla told them of her desire to kill her father.

There are no eyewitnesses to the crime, so the challenge the prosecutor faces is establishing the connection of conspiracy between Kory Tidrow, who is already serving a life sentence for the death, and Camilla.

The trial will continue tomorrow at Frank Philips college Dalhart campus at 8:30 a.m.
