SIOUX CITY, Iowa — Court officials say jury selection will be getting underway Tuesday in a Sioux City courtroom for the trial of the second man charged with killing two elderly people in Crawford County.

A judge granted a venue change for 20-year-old Jayden Chapman because news coverage of the case. Another man charged in the slayings of 80-year-old Marvin Huesling and 81-year-old Alice Huisenga, 27-year-old Michael Schenk, was sentenced last month to two life terms for his role in the killings.

Authorities say Schenk and Chapman shot the pair at a trailer home in Deloit in March 2014 and then set it on fire. Investigators have said Schenk and Chapman probably were on the property to steal scrap metal.
