MORRISON, Ill. (AP) -- The trial of a man accused of killing eight people in two states is slated to begin later in the day.

Jury selection starts Monday in the trial of Nicholas Sheley (SHEE'-lee). Testimony begins next week.

Sheley is accused of killing eight people in Illinois and Missouri over several days in June 2008.

In this trial, Sheley has pleaded not guilty in the June 2008 slaying of the 93-year-old Reed of Sterling. He's already been convicted in the murder of a 65-year-old Galesburg man, and he faces trials in the deaths of six others.

The proceedings are also the first big test of Illinois' experiment with cameras in the courtroom. Cameras have been approved in Whiteside County and other counties will be watching closely to see how it works.
