Trial of Mentally Challenged Man in Jury Selection

In Pitt County, prosecutors are seeking death against Shelton Mills for a 2007 double homicide in Pitt County.

Mills attorneys had previously requested that the court not allow the state to seek death, as Mr. Mills had a 71 IQ and serious cognitive deficiencies.

The case is in jury selection. Eight jurors have been seated.
