Jury selection began Monday in the trial of Randy Rencher. He's the Cook County Jail escapee accused of robbing six banks while on the run. Rencher escaped from jail in 2005 and remained on the loose for more than four months. He is also accused of trying to escape from custody back in February.

Police say Rencher held a busload of inmates and a deputy marshal hostage at the Dirksen Federal Building as part of that attempted escape, but he was recaptured.
