(NEW ALBANY) - Some residents in a southern Indiana county where a man was convicted in the murder of a family friend are questioning prosecutors' decision to pursue two more murder trials against him.
A Floyd County jury last month convicted William Clyde Gibson in the murder of 75-year-old Christine Whitis and recommended that he receive the death penalty.
Prosecutor Keith Henderson is now moving ahead with plans to try Gibson next year in the killings of two other women.
But county employee Cheryl Mills tells The Courier-Journal of Louisville, she questions the need for those two trials, particularly amid the county's budget woes.
Mills and other county employees could lose their jobs early next year because of the county's $2.9 million budget deficit.
