TUSCALOOSA, AL (WBRC) -

Alexius Foster returned to the Tuscaloosa County courthouse on capital murder charges Monday.

The Tuscaloosa man is accused of stabbing his uncle to death in 2013 and shooting another man to death nearly a month later.

Circuit Judge John England declared a mistrial earlier this year after homicide investigators arrested another man in connection with both murders during Foster's trial.

Jury selection started Monday. Lawyers will choose 12 jurors and at least two alternates from an 80 person jury pool.

Prosecutors say George Foster was stabbed to death in his home during a robbery. A month later, Antonio Williams body was discovered in a shallow grave.
They believe Williams was killed because the suspects thought he was talking to police about George Foster's murder.

Foster is being tried separately from Shaddrell Mathews, the other suspect charged in connection with the murders.

His capital murder case has not yet been set for trial.
