JACKSONVILLE, NC (WWAY) -- Attorneys hope they'll have a jury in place by the end of tomorrow in the case of a man accused of killing father and son cyclists.

Thomas Grooms is charged with two counts of second degree murder and driving while impaired. Troopers say Grooms hit and killed David Doolittle and his 17-year-old son Trey last April as they biked on River Road in Wilmington.

Because of publicity attorneys are in Jacksonville chosing the jury. District Attorney Ben David tells WWAY the prosecution has passed all jurors. Now it's the defense's turn.

Opening arguments are expected Wednesday in Wilmington.
