ROCK ISLAND, Ill. (AP) -- Four jurors have been chosen to serve in the murder trial of a man accused of killing eight people in 2008.

Nicholas Sheley already is serving two life terms in two slayings in Illinois. The Daily Gazette in Sterling reports that four jurors were chosen Tuesday for Sheley's next trial on charges he killed four others. Proceedings are to continue in Rock Island on Wednesday.

The 34-year-old Sterling man is charged in the beating deaths of 29-year-old Brock Branson; his fiancee, 20-year-old Kilynna Blake; her 2-year-old son, Dayan; and 25-year-old Kenneth Ulve. They were killed in the apartment in a Rock Falls they all shared.

Sheley has pleaded not guilty.

Sheley still faces trial in the deaths of an Arkansas couple found dead in Missouri.
