Jury selection begins Monday morning in a capital murder trial for one of three people charged in a 2011 double murder in the Kiln. Nicholas Schiling faces two counts of capital murder for the deaths of Joshua Adams and Robert Criswell.

Hancock County Sheriff Department investigators believe Schiling pulled the trigger on June 3, 2011 at a home on Highway 43 in the Kiln community. Detectives report Adams and Criswell's bodies were found in an SUV in a wooded area just outside Abita Springs, Louisiana.

Both victims were shot in the head.

As for the other two suspects in this case, Jessie Adams, the cousin of Joshua Adams, was sentenced to 20 years in prison. He pleaded guilty to two counts of accessory after the fact. Adams also admitted to assisting in the disposal of the victims' bodies. Jessica Falgout, Schiling's girlfriend at the time, is charged with accessory after the fact.
