Jury selection is underway in the trial against a 24-year-old Juneau man charged with murder and manslaughter in connection to the death of his 4-month-old baby in 2010.
Seventy prospective jurors were brought into Juneau Superior Court on Monday morning. That pool will be whittled down to 15 jurors. Three will serve as alternates leaving 12 jurors to decide the case.
Rian Jambi Orr was found seizing on Aug. 9, 2010, and was taken to the hospital where it was discovered she had a massive brain injury. Orr died a week later at Harborview Medical Center in Seattle.
