LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Accused serial killer William Clyde Gibson will be back in court on Monday. Gibson is accused of killing at least three women, and on Monday, he will stand trial for one of the murders.
In September, prosecutors and defense attorneys interviewed several hundred people before picking a jury.
"I've been a prosecutor for approximately 28-years and have prosecuted numerous murder cases and this one is probably...obviously it's the most troubling to me personally," explains Steve Owen, Floyd County Chief Deputy Prosecutor.
On Monday, Gibson will be tried for the murder of 75-year-old Christine Whitis. He is also accused of killing 53-year-old Karen Hodella and 35-year-old Stephanie Kirk.
Owen says, "We've already selected the jury, they've already been prepped so really we'll be hitting the ground running on Monday."
Police say the remains of two of the women were found in Gibson's backyard and garage. We asked Owen how confident he is that Gibson is the right person. His answer: "Very confident, yes. And I think that the evidence that we present will show that next week."
"And when I heard about that. I was like wow, that's him," says Eric January.
January says Gibson was a neighbor and friend. "He looked different and then, he wasn't bloody but he just looked different."
January says he talked to Gibson just before the case broke and eventually turned him in to police. "I had to get around here and tell 'cause I didn't want...my wife lives around. We live around the corner, I didn't want that to happen around this neighborhood."
Meanwhile, prosecutors are not the only ones preparing for Monday's trial, Owen says the victim's family will be there as well. "It's just very difficult for all of them and now to relive it but I know that they are anxiously wanting this trial to go through and to hold Mr. Gibson accountable."
The trial is expected to last for two weeks. Gibson could face the death penalty if convicted. His trial for the other two murders will take place at a later date.
