Jury Selection Begins In McVay Capital Case

March 17, 2014, 11:16 AM by Ben Dunsmoor

Jury Selection Begins In McVay Capital Case
James McVay


It could take a few weeks to pick a jury for the sentencing hearing of admitted-killer James McVay.

The process of selecting jurors in the death penalty case started Monday morning as more than 200 potential Minnehaha County jurors were called to the courthouse to start the selection process.

The jury will not be deciding if 43-year-old McVay is guilty of murdering 75-year-old Maybelle Schein because McVay has already pleaded guilty but mentally ill in this case. What the jury will be deciding is if McVay's crime was serious enough to deserve the death penalty under South Dakota law and then if McVay should be executed for the crime.

The process of picking a jury could take several weeks because of the serious nature of the case.

The jurors are filling out a questionnaire Monday that will be reviewed by the attorneys Tuesday. The prosecution and defense will start questioning potential jurors in person in the courtroom on Wednesday.
