Jury selection continues Tuesday in north Mississippi for the death penalty trial of a man accused of killing eight people on the other end of the state in May 2017.
Willie Cory Godbolt, now 37, said "I'm sorry" while a reporter was recording him after the shootings in south Mississippi's Lincoln County. The dead included a sheriff's deputy and Godbolt's mother-in-law.
Jury selection started Monday at the DeSoto County Courthouse in Hernando, which is near Memphis, Tennessee.
The public information officer for the Mississippi court system, Beverly Pettigrew Kraft, said 500 people were summoned for jury selection. Of the 206 who showed up in court, 75 were excused during questioning Monday.#####
