(KCEN) -- The trial of a Killeen cop accused of having a sexual relationship with a teenager began today.
Fifty-three-year-old Killeen police officer Kirt Yarbrough Sr. was arrested in January for taking a 16-year old girl to a hotel in Copperas Cove.
Investigators say he also took the girl to a Temple hotel.
His trial started in Bell County today after a jury was selected yesterday.
Yarbrough was let go from the Killeen Police Department earlier this year after an internal investigation determined he lied to the department.
Investigators say Yarbrough met the girl through the Killeen Police Explorer program.
