The 11th juror has been chosen in the capital murder case of a Gary man charged with killing his wife and two stepchildren.
The selection came after no jurors were chosen on Thursday and Monday to hear evidence in the case.
Kevin Charles Isom, 46, has pleaded not guilty in the 2007 shooting deaths of his wife, Cassandra Isom, 40, and her two children, Michael Moore, 16, and Ci’Andria Cole, 13. The trial is set to begin Jan. 7 with opening statements and presentation of evidence before Lake Superior Court Judge Thomas Stefaniak Jr.
If jurors convict Isom of the three counts of murder, they will be asked to consider the death penalty, life without parole or a term of years. Murder is punishable by 45 to 65 years.
