DEERFIELD BEACH, FL (WFLX) - Jury selection is scheduled to begin Monday for one of the teens accused of dousing their friend in rubbing alcohol and setting him on fire.

Michael Brewer survived the attack outside a Deerfield Beach apartment complex in 2009. His attackers, Denver Jarvis, Matthew Bent and Jesus Mendez, are each charged with one count of attempted second degree murder.

Mendez is the first to go to trial starting Monday. If convicted, he faces 15 years behind bars.
