CENTRE COUNTY Jury selection begins in Bellefonte BELLEFONTE Jury selection began Wednesday in the trial of a man accused of conspiring to kill a Centre County man during a drugdeal. Thomas Huddleston, 21, of Philipsburg is charged with criminal homicide, robbery and theft for allegedly helping to dispose of the body of Oscar Camargo, 19, of State College. Jurors selected Wednesday were from a pool of Butler County residents because of concerns about pretrial publicity in Centre County. Testimony is expected to begin Monday. Heath Gordon Quick, 20, of Morrisdale pleaded guilty to fatally shooting Camargo. The plea agreement was struck so Quick could avoid the death penalty and because prosecutors were concerned that evidence against him could be ruled illegal because it was obtained at a sobriety checkpoint. According to court papers, Quick confessed to shooting Camargo on Sept. in a car on the road in Black Moshannon State Park. They were in the middle of a drug deal at the time. Quick told police Camargo owed him and an ounce of cocaine. But when they met that night, Camargo had and a gal- lon-sized bag of marijuana with him. Earlier, Quick and Huddleston had talked about "ripping off" Camargo, police said. Once they stopped later that night, Huddleston said, he saw two flashes and heard gunshots as Quick shot Camargo. Quick and Huddleston put Camargo's body in the trunk, drove to an area of the park called "Devil's dumped the body and cleaned the car, police said.
