29 jurors qualify as jury selection continues in Ricky Dubose death penalty trial

District Attorney T. Wright Barksdale says they've qualified 29 potential jurors.

EATONTON, Ga. — Jury selection continued in the trial of Ricky Dubose Friday.

He's the second inmate accused of killing two corrections officers back in 2017.

Now, District Attorney T. Wright Barksdale says they've qualified 29 potential jurors.

That doesn't mean they're picked for the jury, it just means they're eligible to serve and neither side objects.

Their goal is to qualify a pool of 60 people.

Then, lawyers on both sides will narrow that group down to 12 jurors and several alternates.

Court officials estimate testimony may not start until June.
