Attorneys are preparing to go to trial in the case of a suspected serial killer in southern Indiana. 

Listen:

A flurry of last-minute motions by the defense marked the final pretrial hearing in the case of William Clyde Gibson. He's accused of killing and dismembering 75-year-old Christine Whitis.   She's one of three women Gibson is charged with murdering. 

A judge denied a defense motion to delay the start of the October 21st trial. Jury selection will take place later this month. The panel will be brought in from Dearborn County, Indiana.

Gibson's trial is expected to last about three weeks.  If convicted, he faces a possible death sentence.
