Jury selection began Monday in the trial of a man for shooting a Hancock County couple to death two years ago.

According to a news release, 19-year-old Brandon Charleston was arrested in June 2012 and charged with killing the pair on Sept. 11, 2011.

Hancock Sheriff Tomlyn Primus said 34-year-old Darryl Scott and 31-year-old Dedria DeShay Green were shot to death in their home at 141 Tommie Lane in Sparta.

The two were boyfriend and girlfriend, according to Primus.

Two children were reportedly living in the home as well, but they were not injured.

Charleston's trial is expected to begin in Hancock County Superior Court.
