The jury is made up of six men and six women. Three alternate jurors were also picked Monday evening, and several more are expected to be chosen.
Court officials said more alternates will be selected than usual since the trial is expected to last longer than a month.

The judge has ordered the 12 jurors to report to the jury room at 12:45 p.m. Tuesday (April 12), when opening statements and evidence will be presented.
