CLEVELAND, OH (WOIO) -

Jury selection will continue Monday in the trial of a man charged in the deaths of a father and his two children. 

According to Summit County Prosecutor Sherri Bevan Walsh, on Dec. 31, 2013, Eric and Michael Hendon, armed with a gun forced their way into the Barberton home of John Kohler with the intent of stealing money and drugs. In the process of the robbery, 42-year-old Kohler, his 18-year-old step-daughter Ashley Carpenter, and his 14-year-old son David Carpenter-Kohler, were shot and killed. Kohler’s live-in girlfriend, Ronda Blankenship, was shot in the head, but survived. Blankenship lost an eye as a result of the shooting.

Eric faces the death penalty if convicted. 

Michael Hendon was found guilty in August and sentenced to life in prison. 

Jury selection began last Tuesday and is expected to take about a week.
