Potential Jurors Pack Parking Lot at Franklin County Courthouse

Posted: Updated:

PASCO, Wash.- The Franklin County Courthouse parking lot filled early Tuesday morning as 189 potential jurors arrived for a murder trial.

Tashia Stuart has been in county jail since March 2011 when Pasco Police arrested her for the shooting death of her adoptive mother, Judy Hebert. Stuart claims she shot Hebert during an argument when Hebert came at her with a hatchet.

Jurors Tuesday filled out a lengthy questionnaire asking them questions that included their knowledge of the case, whether they know the Hebert family or any of the witnesses scheduled to testify during the trial.

Superior court Judge Cameron Mitchell told the potential jurors they will need to be available through the month of June.
