Jury selected in Marvin case; trial to begin Thursday

Posted: October 24, 2012 - 5:51pm

A jury has been selected in the John N. Marvin Jr. case, and the trial will begin Thursday.

Fourteen jurors were selected — 11 men and three women. Two will serve as alternates.

The jurors took an oath after they were selected, and they were instructed to report back to court Thursday morning for opening statements.

Marvin is charged with two counts of first-degree murder for fatally shooting two police officers in Hoonah in 2010. If convicted, he could be facing life in prison.

District Attorney David Brower said he plans on playing an audio recording of the police scanner radio traffic and displaying photographs of the slain police officers during his opening statements. Brower produced a potential witness list to the court that contained almost 100 names.
