ODESSA - Jury selection for an Odessa man accused of killing an Odessa couple is set to start November fifth.

James Burwell is charged with stabbing Peggy and Dick Glover to death back in May of 2011.

The Glovers' bodies were found by construction workers who were doing renovations at the house for them.

Burwell as later found in Lubbock in the victims' SUV.

Investigators say a pattern on Burwell's blood-stained boots, matched boot prints found at the crime scene.

If he is convicted of capital murder, he would spend life in prison without parole.

Back in August, the Glover family requested that Burwell not face the death penalty.
