BRUNSWICK, Ga. (AP) - Ten women and six men will sit in the jury box during the death penalty trial of a Georgia man charged with killing his father and seven family members inside the Brunswick mobile home they all shared.

The 16-member jury panel, which includes four alternate jurors, was seated Tuesday morning. Glynn County Superior Court Judge Steven Scarlett has ordered all of them to be sequestered throughout the trial, which is expected to last at least two weeks.

Prosecutors say 26-year-old Guy Heinze Jr. single-handedly clubbed all eight victims to death in August 2009. He later cried out in a frantic 911 call: "My whole family is dead!" Heinze has pleaded not guilty.

Prosecutors and defense attorneys are scheduled to give opening statements in the trial Tuesday afternoon.
