LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) - Jury selection began in the trial of a Louisville priest charged with sexually abusing two teens more than 30 years ago. 

Rev. James Schook, 65, is charged with sodomy after being indicted in 2011. 

Schook, who has terminal skin cancer, was deemed fit to stand trial after he was examined by a state doctor. 

Schook is accused of abusing two boys at St. Thomas More Church in Louisville in the 1970's when he was an assistant pastor.
