Jury selection could begin today in the double-murder trial of an Irmo man.
Brett Parker is accused in the fatal shootings of his wife Tammy and a family friend, Bryan Capnerhurst, at the Parkers' home in April of last year.
Prosecutors say Parker killed the two victims in a scheme to collect his wife's insurance money and cover debts he had as a sports bookie.
But the defense contends Capnerhurst shot Parker's wife, and then Parker had to kill Capnerhurst in self-defense.
Parker's defense team has indicated they'll seek immunity under the state's “stand your ground” law.
Pre-trial hearings are expected to continue today prior to the start of jury selection.
