BRUNSWICK, Ga. --  Prosecutors and defense attorneys for Guy Heinze Jr. are scheduled to start questioning prospective jurors Monday.

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 others in a mobile home four years ago.

Prospective jurors will be questioned about their opinions on the death penalty and their exposure to pretrial media coverage of the slayings. 

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 the Brunswick mobile home he shared with the victims.
