Lyndon A pool of 45 potential jurors has been selected for the trial of a man accused of killing four family members in Kansas in November 2009.
The Topeka Capital Journal reports that the jury pool was finalized Tuesday. The potential jurors are scheduled to return to the Osage County Courthouse on Friday to begin the process of selecting 12 jurors and three alternates.
They'll decide the fate of James Kraig Kahler, who's charged with capital murder in the Thanksgiving weekend 2009 deaths of his estranged wife, two daughters and his wife's grandmother.
Kahler had resigned as water department director in Columbia, Mo., several weeks before the killings at his wife's grandmother's home in Burlingame, Kan. The Kahlers were in the midst of a divorce at the time.
