Jury selection will begin today in DeLand, Florida for three of the four men charged in the August 2004 murders of six during an attempt to retrieve an Xbox. Troy Victorino, 29, Robert Cannon and Michael Salas, both 20, and Jerone Hunter, 19, allegedly used aluminum baseball bats to beat to death Erin Belanger, 22, Michelle Nathan, 19, Francisco Ayo-Roman, 30, Anthony Vega, 34, Roberto Gonzalez, 28, and Jonathan Gleason, 17. The victims, some of whom were sleeping, did not resist the attack, which was charged by Victorino's insistence upon reclaiming his Xbox from Belanger.
Canon already pleaded guilty and will receive life in prison in exchange for his testimony. Prosecutors are seeking the death penalty for the remaining three defendants.
