Jury selection has begun in Hamilton at the trial of two men accused in the death of Tim Bosma.

Bosma left his home on May 6, 2013, to take two men for a test drive in a pickup truck he was trying to sell online and never returned.

His body was found a week later ``burned beyond recognition.''

Dellen Millard, of Toronto, and Mark Smich, from Oakville, Ont., are both charged with first-degree murder in Bosma's death.

Lawyers for both men have said they will plead not guilty to the charges.

Hundreds of potential jurors are expected to participate in the selection process that may last up to two weeks.

Justice Andrew Goodman said the trial is scheduled to last at least four months, but that it could go longer. The trial itself is expected to begin Feb. 1.

Both Millard and Smich were in the courtroom Monday.
