A jury has been selected in the James McVay death penalty case.
Tuesday morning, prosecutors and defense attorneys agreed on a jury of ten men and five women.
McVay pleaded guilty but mentally ill for the murder of 75-year-old Maybelle Schein. McVay said it was part of a plot to assassinate the president.
The jury will first decide if McVay qualifies for the death penalty under South Dakota law. If he does, they will then determine if McVay should be executed or get life in prison for the crime.
To receive the death penalty, the jury's decision must be unanimous.
The trial will start Wednesday.
