=========

It going to be a heart-wrenching couple of weeks for a South Florida family who have been waiting two years for justice.

Jury selection is set to begin today in Gainesville ahead of the kidnapping, poisoning and first-degree murder trial of Pedro Bravo.

He's the 20-year-old who's accused of killing his one-time close friend and Doral Academy Preparatory School classmate Christian Aguilar.

Cops believe they got into a fight over a girl.

Surveillance video showed Aguilar and Bravo walking into a Best Buy.

That was the last time the 18-year-old was seen alive.

Aguilar's body was found weeks later half-buried in the woods in Levy County.

Prosecutors say they have convincing evidence against Bravo... Aguilar's backpack in his apartment, receipts showing he bought a shovel and duct tape days before Aguilar's disappearance, and blood in his car.

They won't seek the death penalty.

Bravo will face up to life in prison, if convicted.
