Jury selection began today in the trial of LaPorte man accused of seriously injuring his

girlfriend's ex-husband with a knife.

46 year old Ronald Romano is charged with battery and several other felony counts.

A year ago.....police say Jason Haywood went to Romano's home in the 400 block of

L St.

Apparently....Haywood's ex-wife was staying there but she wanted out.

So....he went there to get her out of the residence.

Romano allegedly grabbed a shotgun then during a struggle inside the home sliced Haywood's

nose and stabbed him in the hand.

He could face anywhere from one to six years on the most serious count
