JACKSON, MS (Mississippi News Now) -

A man who has become infamous in the Capital City drug and crime world is back in court this week.

Jury selection began Monday in the aggravated assault case of Albert 'Batman' Donelson.

Donelson is accused of beating Robert Crosby, 21, in September of last year.

Crosby was found naked and badly beaten, stuffed in a shopping cart in front of the Star Grocery, which is less than a block from Donelson's home.

During an interview with WLBT last year, Donelson said he was shot at two weeks before the incident and defended himself, fearing for his life.

Donelson and two other alleged "Wood Street Playaz" gang members were acquitted of murder in April of 2006.

Donelson served six years for a gun possession charge.
