Four jurors have been chosen as jury selection continues at the next trial of a man accused of killing eight people in two states. Jury selection started today in the trial of Nicholas Sheley. He is accused of killing eight people in Illinois and Missouri in June 2008. In this trial, Sheley has pleaded not guilty in the slaying of 93-year-old Russell Reed of Sterling. He's already been convicted in the murder of a 65-year-old Galesburg man, and he faces trials in the deaths of six others. The proceedings are also the first big test of Illinois' experiment with cameras in the courtroom. Cameras have been approved in Whiteside County, and other counties will be watching closely.
