— Jury selection is expected to begin Monday for the trial of a man accused of killing eight people in Mississippi . Godbolt pleaded not guilty to multiple charges including murder and capital murder. His attorney told the judge Godbolt isn’t expected to use an insanity defense at trial .

Godbolt has pleaded not guilty to four counts of capital murder, four counts of murder, one count of attempted murder, two counts of kidnapping and one count of armed robbery. He has remained in custody since his arrest on May 28, 2017, hours after the shootings. One of his attorneys has said Godbolt is unlikely to use an insanity defense at trial.

Investigators said Godbolt went to his in-laws' home in Bogue Chitto and got into an argument with his estranged wife and her family over the couple's two children. A deputy was called, and a witness said Godbolt fatally shot the deputy, Godbolt's mother-in-law and two other people. After that, Godbolt shot and killed four other people at two other homes, police said.

Because of pretrial publicity in south Mississippi, jury selection was done in north Mississippi's DeSoto County, 285 miles (459 kilometers) north of Lincoln County. The 12 jurors and three alternates were selected Friday. They are hearing the case at the Pike County courthouse in Magnolia, which is near Lincoln County.
