Bradford County Court sent jury notices to 500 people for the trial of 28 year old Dustin Briggs.
He's charged with 1st and 3rd degree murder for the shooting deaths of the two Sheriff's Deputies.
Michael VanKuren and Christopher Burgert were gunned down on Brigg's family property in Gillett in 2004.
Authorities say they were serving a warrant for Briggs' arrest on drug charges.
The judge has noted it could take several weeks to seat a jury.
Opening arguments in Brigg's trial are scheduled to start on January 23rd.
