WARREN, Ohio (WKBN) —  Jury selection will continue Tuesday in the capital murder case of a Warren man accused of killing his parents.

It could take several days for attorneys to whittle down the jury for the Louis Mann trial. More than 150 prospective jurors were summoned for duty.

Mann, 33, is charged in the brutal deaths of Phil Mann, 59, and Frances Mann, 53.

The murders happened Sept. 30, 2011, inside the couple’s Jefferson Street home. Police say Mann admitted to strangling his mother with a clothesline and beating his father with a heavy flashlight and shooting him.

Louis Mann’s lawyers claim the confession came when he was under the influence of drugs. Mann could face the death penalty if found guilty.
