OPELIKA, Ala. (AP) - Attorneys are questioning potential jurors in the trial of a man charged in a deadly shooting on a community college campus in Opelika.

Prosecutors and defense lawyers are asking about the death penalty and pre-trial publicity in the capital murder case of 37-year-old Thomas Franklin May III.

The Opelika-Auburn News (https://bit.ly/1fTy0bu ) reports jury selection is continuing Wednesday in Lee County.

May is charged with murder in the gunshot slaying of his mother-in-law, Brenda Watson, on the campus at Southern Union State Community College in 2011.

He’s also charged with attempted murder in the wounding of his estranged wife, their daughter and his wife’s grandmother. All four females were in a car together when the shooting started.

May is using an insanity defense.
