Jury selection is set to start Monday in the murder trial of an Esto man accused of killing a Holmes County store clerk in December 2010.

In Bonifay Monday morning, Circuit Judge Chris Patterson will oversee jury selection for the murder trial of 34-year-old Johnny Mack Calhoun.

Calhoun is accused of killing 24-year-old Mia Brown.

Investigators say he held brown for three days before putting her in the trunk of her car, driving to the Hartford, Alabama area and setting the car on fire. Brown died in that fire.

NewsChannel 7 will cover the jury selection, which may prove to be difficult because of the case's notoriety. The state has said it will likely seek the death penalty if Calhoun is convicted.

    This is what can happen to young women, when scum walks the earth. As much as they told on the news about her murder and when they found her car and arrested Sketo, don't leave any doubt as of who committed this murder.She may have died on this earth, but she's up in heaven with the angels.
