Jury selection is underway in the trial for a London man accused of killing a woman during a Madison County home invasion.

Police say Douglas Wayne Hall, II killed Margaret Faye Jackson and tried to kill Mitchell Turner while robbing them inside her Madison County trailer back in 2006.

Another man, Tony Hodge, has already pleaded guilty in connection with the crime.

Court officials say 106 potential jurors reported Monday morning; they say 13 will be seated for the trial.

The Richmond Register reports Hall's attorney tried to get a change of venue but that request was denied.
