Jury selection to start Tuesday in 2 slayings

Jury selection in the first-degree murder trial of a Westminster man accused of fatally stabbing his mother and her boyfriend last year is expected to begin Tuesday, according to the Carroll County circuit judge presiding over the case.

The trial of Jason Aaron DeLong, 19, was to have begun Monday but was postponed after one of his Baltimore defense attorneys, Luther C. West, was hospitalized for internal bleeding. Catherine Flynn, his co-counsel in the case, said yesterday that Mr. West was discharged Wednesday from Anne Arundel Medical Center and would be able to return to work Tuesday.

Carroll Circuit Judge Francis M. Arnold said yesterday that jury selection should begin Tuesday. He said 72 witnesses, including 12 doctors, have been called in the case.

Police found the bodies of Cathryn Brace Farrar, 39, and George William Wahl, 35, last August. Mr. DeLong and a girlfriend, Sara E. Citroni, were arrested several days later. Citroni pleaded guilty to the killings last month, and she is to receive two consecutive life sentences under a plea agreement.
