(WHAS11) -- William Clyde Gibson, the southern Indiana man accused of murdering three women, will be tried separately in each of those cases.

The first trial is set for July for the murder of 75-year-old Christine Whitis in new albany. In court Wednesday the Floyd County Clerk of Courts explained that jurors will be selected from Dearborn County.

Prosecutors say it was decided early on that because of the high level of publicity in this case, jurors would have to come from outside the area.

In April 800 potential jurors in Dearborn County will be sent questionnaires with 200 questions. This will help the courts get to know the jurors before ever meeting them.

Jury selection will begin in June and the trial will begin in july.

Gibson will also be tried for the murders of Stephanie Kirk and Karen Hodella.
