Judge denies delay request in trial of accused serial killer

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- The trial for an accused serial killer will continue on as scheduled.

In court on Monday morning, prosecutors in the first murder trail for William Clyde Gibson said the trial will go on as scheduled and that jury selection will start next month.

This comes after the defense attorneys asked the judge for a delay last week, but he denied the request.

The jury for the trial will be brought in from Dearborn County, Indiana because of pre-trial publicity.

Gibson will first be tried for the murder of Christine Whitis, whose dismembered body was found in Gibson's garage last year. Gibson will also be tried for the murders of Karen Hodella and Stephanie Kirk

If convicted in the murders Gibson will face the death penalty.
