Problems with listview and checkbox event

I'm having problems with what's suppose to be a simple thing to code. I create a list view with two columns: a checkbox and a text view. When the user clicks on the text view, I fire up an intent and when the user clicks on the checkbox (one or more of them) I want to grab the id and show a 'delete this textview' icon in the action bar. I don't understand how to listen for the event when the users checks a checkbox.

This sums up what I'm trying to accomplish

This is my main.xml which contains the List View:

The custom layout which is used to display the checkbox and the textview in the listview (msg.xml):

Main class:

If anyone can help I would be very grateful, I've been struggling with this for 2 days now.

The following code is a sample for CheckBox on Checked Event.

CheckBox box = (CheckBox) findViewById(R.id.checkBox1);
box.setOnCheckedChangeListener(new OnCheckedChangeListener() {
public void onCheckedChanged(CompoundButton buttonView, boolean isChecked) {
// Your Logic here

Is this what you are looking for ?.
