LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) - Jury selection continues for one of the men charged with killing a man and stuffing his body in a storage bin in Old Louisville.

Jury selection for the trial of Joseph Banis began Friday and is expected to throughout the week due to the amount of publicity the case has received.

Banis and Jeffery Mundt are accused of killing James Carroll in their home.

In June of 2010 Carroll's body was found decomposing in a sealed plastic storage bin in their basement.

Banis and Mundt each blame each other for Carroll's murder.

In an interview with police Banis said, "Jace dug the hole until he came upstairs furious one day because I didn't want to be down there. I didn't want to be part of this whole thing."

Once the jury has been selected the trial will start in May.

Mundt will be tried separately.
