BRUNSWICK, GA – Slow but steady progress in questioning potential jurors in the Ross Harris murder trial.
The case was moved five hours south, after the judge granted a change of venue last spring, saying an impartial jury could not be found in Cobb County.
Harris is a father accused of intentionally leaving his toddler son in a hot car while he went to work.
Questioning is now more focused – with just the first 12 in the courtroom, talking to each juror individually at times.
As heavy rains outside caused minor leaks inside the courtroom, jury questioning went on as planned.
While a majority of potential jurors say they have heard something about Ross Harris and what he’s accused of, attorneys on both sides remain optimistic they can find a fair jury.
The hope is to complete questioning of the first 36 potential jurors by the end of Wednesday. The next batch of 36 potential jurors is being called to show up Thursday morning.
