ODESSA - A man who police say accused his friend of being Satan right before stabbing him is set to stand trial this week.

Jury selection for the trial of James Williams begins on Tuesday.

Back in 2010, Williams admitted to stabbing 59-year-old Antonio Villa in the chest.

Villa died a few hours later.

It happened at an apartment that houses mentally challenged people.

A witness says Williams began stabbing Villa while saying "I'm going to kill you, Satan."

Williams has been charged with first degree murder.
