CALGARY – Jury selection is underway for the trial of a man accused of killing a boy and his grandparents.
Douglas Garland was arrested in 2014 following the disappearance of Alvin and Kathy Liknes and five-year-old Nathan O’Brien.
Garland faces three counts of first-degree murder in a five-week trial that is to begin on Monday.
A total of 472 people were called as part of a prospective pool from which 14 jurors and two alternates will be chosen.
A large ceremonial courtroom and two smaller ones were full this morning.
The bodies of Nathan and his grandparents have not been found.
