Jury Being Picked For Man Charged In 3 Deaths

Last updated on Wednesday, September 25, 2013

(LAWRENCEBURG) - Jury selection has started for a trial of a southern Indiana man charged with killing three women over the course of a decade.

Prosecutors and defense attorneys began Monday questioning about 300 potential jurors at the Dearborn County courthouse in Lawrenceburg to hear the case against William Clyde Gibson of New Albany. Jurors will come from the county near Cincinnati because of extensive news coverage about Gibson in the Louisville area.

Gibson's trial is to start Oct. 21 for last year's death of 75-year-old family friend Christine Whitis.

Floyd County Prosecutor Keith Henderson tells WLKY-TV the potential jurors are being asked their opinions of the death penalty and whether they know about Gibson's case.

Gibson also is charged with killing a Charlestown woman and a Florida woman since 2002.
