Desoto District Judge Robert Burgess tells KEEL news 80 potential jurors have been questioned so far and 29 of them have been told to be on standby. The judge says another 60 have been summoned for court today. The judge earlier told us he expected jury selection to take 5-7 days, but now says that might double. He says the hardship placed on potential jurors is one problem. But he also says the fact that it’s a death penalty case has also been a hurdle. Horn is accused of luring the young boy from a home via text messages claiming to be a girl. Bloxom’s mother and several other family members and friends are in Baton Rouge for the jury selection process. Hear our interview with the judge:
