Lawyers To Open Sioux Falls Death Penalty Trial
James McVay

SIOUX FALLS, SD -

Jurors in Sioux Falls must decide if a man should die by lethal injection for killing a woman as part of what he says was a plan to assassinate the president.

Opening statements began Wednesday in the case against 43-year-old James McVay.

He pleaded guilty but mentally ill to first-degree murder for the July 2011 stabbing death of 75-year-old Maybelle Schein.

McVay was arrested in Madison, Wis., and said he killed Schein and stole her car as part of a plot to drive to Washington and assassinate President Barack Obama.

Ten men and five women are serving as a jury and three alternates.

They'll decide if McVay qualifies for the death penalty and, if so, whether he deserves the death penalty or life in prison.
