Barren County On Trial

2:05 AFTERNOON UPDATE: Jury selection continues in BCSO federal trial

(Continued)

BOWLING GREEN —

McKinley's last directive to the jury pool before he released them for lunch was that jurors must form their verdict based solely on the evidence.

The evidence only encompasses witness testimony and exhibits presented at trial, he said. Lawyers' arguments are not evidence.

After lunch, it will be time for defense attorneys and prosecutors to question the jury pool. Once all questions have been asked, the pool of juror candidates will be decreased to 33 by the court, and then attorneys on both sides will have a chance to remove more jurors.

The three defense attorneys will have a combined 12 strikes and the prosecutors will be able to strike seven jurors. At the end of jury selection, there will be 14 jurors. Two will be alternates, but they will not be told they are alternates rather than full jurors.
