By Rebecca Blatt

Jury selection is expected to finish up today for Baltimore Mayor Sheila Dixon's theft trial.

Dixon spent more than four hours Monday afternoon standing at the bench. Attorneys and visiting Judge Dennis Sweeney questioned prospective jurors.

Of a pool of 137 potential jurors, 67 were called to the bench, and 36 were qualified as jurors. Two of the qualified jurors had previously indicated to the court that they had formed opinions about the case.

Dixon called the selection process "interesting." That one word was her only public statement of the day.

Dixon is accused of stealing gift cards donated for needy families. She would be thrown out of office if convicted.
