Jury Selection goes on for Murder Trial

Posted: Updated:

Pasco, WA- Attorneys representing a man accused of five murders say they doubt they can find an impartial jury in Franklin County.
The defense team for Vicente Ruiz says three out of four prospective jurors have read or heard about the case. 
 Ruiz is accused of gunning down five men in a Pasco auto body shop 23 years ago.
The judge has excused more than 50 people out of the 160 in the jury pool.
Defense attorneys indicate they may ask the judge to move the trial out of Franklin county. 
Prosecutors hope to have a jury seated and start presenting evidence later this week.
