Jury selection in the trial of two of three people charged with the murder of a Syracuse couple began Thursday.

24-year-olds Brandon Woody and Kyle Dehart face two counts of murder in the shooting of Joshua Knisley and Tara Thornburg in February of 2015. Woody and Dehart will be tried jointly, according to our reporting partners at News Now Warsaw.

Dehart faces an obstruction of justice charge in addition to the two murder charges. Woody and Dehart are being held in the Kosciusko County Jail with no bond.

Jury selection is scheduled for two days, followed by the five-day jury trial beginning Monday in Kosciusko Circuit Court.

A murder charge carries a maximum penalty of 45 years to life in prison without parole.
