CARIBOU — A Maine judge has scheduled a date for jury selection to begin in the case of a young man charged with murdering two men and a 10-year-old boy in a tiny northern Maine town.

Justice E. Allen Hunter has ordered that jury selection begin April 4 in 21-year-old Thayne Ormsby’s murder trial. An Aroostook County Superior Court clerk told the Bangor Daily News that two weeks have been set aside for jury selection, after which the trial will begin.

Ormsby is charged with fatally stabbing 55-year-old Jeffrey Ryan, his son Jesse, and 30-year-old Jason Dehahn, a friend and neighbor, at Ryan’s home in Amity on June 22, 2010.

Ormsby has pleaded not guilty. He is being held without bail.
