William Clyde Gibson
(Lawrenceburg, Ind.) - Jury selection begins Monday in Lawrenceburg for a southern Indiana alleged serial killer’s trial.
William Clyde Gibson, 55, allegedly murdered three women in Floyd County between 2002 and 2012. He will have three trials, and the first one for the murder of Christine Whitis begins in October.
Twelve men and women from Dearborn County will be chosen as jurors for Gibson’s first trial. Jury selection at the Dearborn County Courthouse is expected to take at least a couple days.
The jurors from Dearborn County will be sequestered in New Albany for the duration of the trial, which is expected to last up to three weeks. Gibson could be sentenced to death if convicted.
Gibson has been brought to Lawrenceburg so he can be present during the jury selection. He was booked into the Dearborn County Law Enforcement Center Sunday afternoon.
In addition to Whitis, Gibson is accused of killing Stephanie Kirk in 2012 and Karen Hodella in 2002.
