Jury Selection Nearly Complete In Huguely Trial

Attorneys have narrowed their pool of potential jurors in the trial of a former University of Virginia lacrosse player accused of killing his ex-girlfriend, according to the Associated Press.

Prosecutors and defense lawyers on Tuesday picked a group of jurors from which to choose 12 jurors and three alternates for the trial of George Huguely V. He has pleaded not guilty to first-degree murder and five other charges in the May 2010 death of 22-year-old Yeardley Love, a member of the women's lacrosse team.

Twenty-eight people were to return Wednesday morning because one potential juror said she would be traveling a day after the trial is expected to end. She was expected to be dismissed. Each side will choose to remove six.

Opening statements are expected to begin Wednesday.
