KNOXVILLE (WATE) – The jury selection for a man accused of stabbing a woman to death along a Knox County greenway started Monday.

Investigators believe Timothy Ison murdered Stefany Fairbanks, 42, on the Third Creek Greenway in 2015.

The Knox County District Attorney General is seeking a life sentence without the possibility of parole.

Police say Ison and Fairbanks had no prior contact before the woman was murdered.

Ison made headlines more than 10 years ago for a home invasion, stabbing and fire in the Holston Hills neighborhood.
