Gateway murder trial

A few more excused

leave a comment »

A few more jurors have been excused in the long afternoon of questioning. So far about 30 potential jurors have been excused.

Normally, only around 35 people are called for a jury pool and the jury is usually chosen within a few hours. This time there were 100 potential jurors, so it is expected to last much, much longer. Although the schedule only planned for Wednesday and Thursday to be jury selection and Friday to be opening statements. We’ll probably have a better idea tomorrow of whether or not that is possible.
