13 Jurors Qualified in Accused Sniper's Trial

13 potential jurors have been qualified to sit in the trial of accused Sniper suspect John Muhammed. The Court needs to qualify 27, and then both sides will begin exercising their peremptory challenges. The Virginian-Pilot continues its online reporting from the courthouse. Here's a wrap-up of today's events.

This sounds like very fast jury selection to us, particularly in a death penalty case. The questions focused on juror's attitudes on the death penalty, and whether they felt "victimized" by the sniper attacks. Most jurors said they did not feel victimized as the attacks were 200 miles away.

Testimony is expected to begin Monday in the trial.
