In a little less than a month, accused murderer Damon Jolly will stand trial in Savannah.
Jolly is accused of killing Bibb County sheriff's deputy Joseph Whitehead in 2006.
Jolly's trial is set to start Nov. 26. In the mean time, Judge Tilman Self III is working to hash out issues that came up ahead of the trial.
On Thursday, Judge Self heard arguments on how members of the jury should be selected. The defense team is arguing that Georgia's new method of selecting jury pools from a data base of driver's licenses and voting registration under-represents certain segments of the population like African Americans and those in the 18 to 30 age group. Jury pools used to be selected by local jury commissions.
According to Jolly's attorney Jeff Grube, Judge Self has not yet ruled on the matter.
Grube says November 5, they'll be back in court. He says the hearing will likely deal with the defense's motion to exclude "gruesome/prejudicial photographs" from the trial.
