"Playgirl" Coverboy Now Ducking For Cover In Murder Trial

Timothy Boham, 27

DENVER (AP) Jury selection is under way in the murder trial of a former porn actor accused of killing a Denver businessman.

Twenty-seven-year-old Timothy J. Boham is charged with first-degree murder and aggravated robbery in the shooting death of John Kelso more than 2½ years ago.

A housekeeper found the 43-year-old Kelso dead in the bathtub of his home on Nov. 13, 2006. Kelso was the president of Professional Recovery Systems, a Denver collection agency.

Previously released court documents indicate Boham told his mother and sister he tried to rob Kelso of $400,000 he thought Kelso kept in a safe, but that Boham said his gun fired accidentally.

Boham was arrested in Arizona three days later.

Boham appeared in films in 2004-05 under the name Marcus Allen.
