State Attorney probed potential jurors in Dunn trial

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- Loud music, race, and violent crime were the subject of questioning of potential jurors at the Michael Dunn trial, as State Attorney Angela Corey began probing for bias and possible reasons for dismissing them.

There are officially 62 potential jurors, although one was a no-show Wednesday morning.

Judge Russell Healey initially delayed the start of trial to wait for the missing juror, a black female, but eventually decided to press on.

Most jurors said they believed they could be fair and impartial jurors, but a few expressed concern that their previous experience with violent crimes -- either as a victim, or a close relationship with one -- would be hard to overcome when hearing testimony.

By late morning, Michael Dunn's attorney, Corey Strolla, had not yet begun his questioning of jurors, and no jurors have been selected as yet.
