LINCOLN COUNTY, TN (WAFF) -

Jury selection begins Wednesday in a mass murder trial in Lincoln County, Tennessee.

Zakkawanda Moss is one of the men charged in connection with the Oct. 2012 Alabama and Tennessee mass murders.

The judge said he would consider bringing in jurors from outside Lincoln County, Tennessee, after Moss' lawyers requested moving the trial because of media coverage.

Authorities said Moss and Henry Burrell killed five people and an unborn child in Madison County, Alabama, and Lincoln County, Tennessee. They said the two men killed the victims while going through two homes looking for drugs and money.

Burrell's trial is set to start in February.
