Jury selection opens this morning on a double-murder trial in Des Moines. Twenty-eight-year-old D.J. Schofield of Des Moines is accused in the 2004 shooting deaths of Terry and Lisa Dilks at their home in Urbandale.
The Dilks were federal drugs informants who had been preparing to testify against Schofield’s sister and her then-boyfriend, who were facing meth charges. If convicted, Scholfield could face two sentences of life in prison. He’s already in prison on ten counts of attempted murder following a shootout with police at a Des Moines hotel in 2005.
