Jury selection is expected to begin Monday for the trial of Brawny Jarvis McCollough charged with two counts of malice murder and two counts of felony murder in connection with the deaths of his father and great-aunt in February 2012.
District Attorney Layla Zon will seek the death penalty in the case. Judge Eugene Benton will preside over the case.
The bodies of 56-year-old wheel-chair bound Donald McCollough and 66-year-old Peggy Molden were discovered on Feb. 7, 2012, when emergency medical personnel and sheriff’s deputies responded to a call for help from a medical alert device inside Covington home on Tempie Lane.
