PAULS VALLEY, OK (AP)-- Extra deputies are being posted in Garvin County for a big trial.

Justin Hammer, 32, of Elmore City, is charged with first degree murder in the death of Brandon Duran, 32.

Hammer is accused of shooting his girlfriend's ex-husband to death in 2012, then cutting up his body and stuffing the remains into cement-filled buckets.

Sheriff Larry Rhodes says he's positioning extra deputies at the Garvin County courthouse.

Jury selection is set to start on Monday and the trial could last for three weeks.
