NEW ALBANY, IN (WAVE) - The defense and prosecution in the case of a suspected serial killer in southern Indiana met with the judge Wednesday.

Both sides discussed how to keep the trial for William Clyde Gibson on track.

Gibson is set to stand trial in July for the murder of Christine Whitis, 75.

New Albany police said Whitis was found dead in his home on April 19, 2012.

Gibson could face the death penalty for Whtis' murder.

Jurors will be brought in from far eastern Indiana, in Dearborn County.

The investigation into Whitis' death led police to the body of Stephanie Kirk, who was buried in Gibson's backyard.

Authorities said Gibson also confessed to killing Karen Hodella in 2002.

The trials for the deaths of Kirk and Hodella will be held separately.
