(SULLIVAN) - A Sullivan man will face a jury of his peers this month in his double murder trial in the strangulation death of his pregnant step-sister.

Johnus Luke Orr's trial is set for June 27 in Sullivan Superior Court, starting with jury selection.

If convicted, he faces a maximum penalty of 65 years in prison for each of the two murder counts.

The Tribune-Star reports that Orr's attorney wants jurors sequestered to limit their exposure to media accounts during the trial.

Orr allegedly killed 20-year-old Tiffanie Adams and her viable baby boy in November 2014. Her body was found in a farm field north of Sullivan the following month.

Adams was last seen in Sullivan leaving her father's house on foot and heading to her mother's nearby home. She was nearly eight months pregnant when she died.
