Jury selection is scheduled to begin Monday in northeast Ohio in the murder trial of an ex-convict charged with strangling his mother and fatally beating and shooting his father in a rage.
More than 150 prospective jurors were summoned for duty.
If Mann is convicted in the Sept. 30, 2011, murders of 59-year-old Phillip Mann and 53-year-old Frances Mann and the theft of their car, a jury will be asked whether Mann should be executed.
Police say the defendant admitted strangling his mother and hitting his father with a flashlight and shooting him.
