Jury selection for the three defendants indicted for the murder of 16-year-old Arnesha Bowers last summer has been postponed until Feb. 29. 
 
Bowers was found dead in her grandmother's home on June 7. Police said she was kidnapped, raped, and her genitals set on fire to destroy evidence of the assault. Investigators said the culprits then set on the home on fire -- all carried out as part of a "gang initiation." 
 

Bloods gang members Adonay Dixon and John Childs, along with Raeshawn Rivers, 14, who has been charged as an adult, will stand trial for her killing.
