Final Hearing of FSU Law Professor Murderer
According to Kelley, during the final hearing last October 20, Judge Stephen Everett reportedly ran through the details of the selection of the jury. Further reports say Everett stated that the jurors will be asked questions including what they know about the murder of the FSU law professor, what sources they had to obtain their knowledge on the case, their opinion on whether Adelson is guilty or innocent, their capability of being impartial and fair, and several others.
Reports also say there will be a total of 12 jurors with three alternates. This suggests that the court will summon 100 jurors every day for the first 3 days in an attempt to find individuals who have not yet formed an opinion about the murder of the FSU law professor. Nonetheless, Everett also stated that the selection of the jury is expected to be accomplished by October 26 or October 27. In addition, the murder trial is expected to last up to three weeks.
