Jury selection began Monday in the trial of a man accused of killing a Leslie County family of five in 2004.
The trial was moved last week to Clay County because a jury could not be seated in Leslie County. Attorneys began questioning potential jurors Monday; 14 of 39 were excluded after individual interviews, which will continue Tuesday, said Barbara Carnes, public defender for Clayton Jackson.
If a jury is not seated in Clay County, the trial could be moved out of the region.
The murder of Chris and Amanda Sturgill and their three children in 2004 was a gruesome, high-profile case. Jackson was arrested three years later. Prosecutors could seek the death penalty.
