HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - Attorneys in the trial for an accused spy from Maui have begun the laborious task of selecting an impartial jury to decide his fate. Noshir Gowadia is suspected of selling US military secrets to China.

The former B-2 stealth bomber engineer is fighting 21 charges at US District Court in Honolulu. They include conspiracy and money laundering. If convicted, he could face a life sentence.

Investigators say Gowadia shared missile design information with the Chinese. He's been in custody since his arrest five years ago.
