Fred Cooper jury selected, trial II begins

Jury selection was completed today in the Fred Cooper trial in Saint Petersburg.

Nine women and five men comprise the jury. Two African-Americans. One Hispanic-American. Also, an indication Cooper will probably testify in this trial: One of those selected is the man who said he would hold it against Cooper if he didn’t testify.

Steven Beardsley of the Naples News is live blogging the trial.

Some of the officers who discovered the bodies testified this afternoon.

They testified that Steven and Michelle Andrews were found on the second floor of their home in the master bedroom and there was “a lot of blood. It was apparent there were no signs of life.”

The couple’s 2-year-old son, Lukasz Andrews, was found in the home unharmed.

The trial was adjourned about 5:20 p.m. and will resume on Monday.
