The first thing to try is if it will start in neutral. If it does, there is an issue with the park/neutral safety switch. Let me know.
Next, I attached the entire wiring schematic of the starting system below. I had to cut the pic in half to make it readable, but I did overlap them so you can follow.
Now, on the starter, you will find a heavy gauge wire which is black. It supplies 12v at all times. Confirm that is present.
There is a smaller wire which is violet with a white tracer that provides 12v as well, but only when the key is in the start position. Have a helper turn the key to start and check for power.
Here are two links to help with testing:
If there is power to the smaller wire, replace the starter. Here is a link showing how in general to do it:
Here are directions specific to your vehicle for starter motor replacement. The remaining pics below correlate with these directions.
