NORMAN, Okla. (AP) - Jury selection is under way in the trial of a 53-year-old man charged with three counts of first-degree murder. William Eugene Davis is accused in the Sept. 4, 2007, shotgun killings of his two sisters and the mother-in-law of one of the victims.
Prosecutors are seeking the death penalty.
Prospective jurors were called into District Judge Lori Walkley's office to be questioned individually by prosecution and defense attorneys regarding their views on the death penalty.
Walkley says she expects jury selection to last at least four days.
A jury was seated in the case in May, but Walkley dismissed the panel and rescheduled the trial after Norman police uncovered new evidence. Authorities have declined to reveal the nature of the evidence.
