BRUNSWICK, Ga. (AP) - Attorneys could take a full month to pick a jury to hear the death penalty trial of a coastal Georgia man charged with killing his father and seven members of an extended family in their mobile home four years ago.

Prosecutors and defense attorneys for Guy Heinze Jr. are scheduled to start questioning prospective jurors Monday about their opinions on the death penalty and their exposure to pretrial media coverage of the 2009 slayings. Glynn County Superior Court Judge Stephen Scarlett has set aside a full four weeks. Final jury selection and the murder trial itself won't take place until Oct. 15.

Heinze has pleaded not guilty in the August 2009 slayings at a Brunswick mobile home he shared with the victims. All eight victims were beaten to death.
