UPDATE: Jury Seated In Brooke Skylar Richardson Case


UPDATE: Late Tuesday afternoon, a jury was seated and juror alternates were selected.

The trial will continue on Wednesday morning with opening statements, though the jury already got a taste of that during the selection process on Tuesday. Prosecutors and defense attorneys were allowed to introduce themselves to the dozens of people in the pool, and they presented some idea of what they'd be arguing in the coming days.
