Jury Selection Off To Slow Start In Gregory Lee Trial
Posted April 26, 2006
DURHAM, N.C. — There is another stumbling block in jury selection for the retrial of a young man charged with killing his elderly Durham neighbor.
A judge declared a mistrial in Gregory Lee's trial Tuesday. He is charged with killing 89-year-old Lois Cannady. During jury selection, a prospective juror said she remembered Lee because she said he tried to pass a forged check at a bank.
In September, a jury deadlocked on a murder charge.
Twenty people were excused Wednesday, which left only 10 potential jurors in the pool.
Lawyers will continue jury selection Thursday.
