Tifton - A jury is seated to hear the death penalty case of a Tifton man charged with murder. Prosecutors believe Waylon Holsenbeck beat 76-year old Mary Hancock, stole her car, then dumped her body in a wooded area in June of 2004.

Holsenbeck was captured in Okaloossa County, Florida after the murder. Investigators say he was a family friend of Hancock, but she filed charges against him just days before she was killed claiming Holsenbeck stole money and checks from her.

The trial is expected to begin Tuesday morning. The judge issued a gag order for this case and Jurors must remain sequestered during the trial.
