Jury selection has begun for Joshua Hart, one of the suspect's in a deadly home invasion in Orange.

The Franklin Superior Court clerk's office told Western Mass News that Brittany Smith's trial will begin after Hart's.

The two are accused of killing 95-year old Thomas Harty and severely injuring his 77-year old wife Joanna Fisher, who later died.

The incident happened back in October 2016.

Hart and Smith pleaded not guilty to their charges.

Officials say Smith's trial should begin around April 17.
