An Onslow County man will apparently admit to killing his wife when jurors are selected for his trial this afternoon.
Soyer Moll is accused of strangling his wife, Virginia, and then burying her body in a shallow grave behind their home two years ago.
During pre-trial motions this morning, Moll's attorney read a statement from Moll, agreeing to let his lawyer say during jury selection that he did kill his wife. But Moll will not allow his lawyer to go into their defense strategy with potential jurors.
The couple had been married about a year, and the wife's body was found on their daughter's first birthday.
