Jackson mayor’s jury pool to grow

The week started out with 95 potential jurors. So far, about 50 have been cut.

Jordan said jury selection will continue through Friday with opening statements pushed to next week.

“We’re not making the progress I really had hoped,” Jordan said.

Jury selection ran from 8:30 a.m. this morning to almost 5:30 p.m. Of the 17 potential jurors questioned, 10 were dismissed.
