Davis & Saltzman Trial: original jury excused

LAKE CHARLES, LA (KPLC) - Judge David Ritchie finds it's all or nothing. That is, since three of the original jurors have been excused for hardship they cannot now go forward with the original jury in the Davis and Saltzman trial as ordered by the Third Circuit.

The women are accused of murdering Davis's husband Brian in 2009.

So, the rest of the original jury has been excused and selection of a new jury is to start Tuesday morning.

A couple of defense motions are being heard before court recesses today.

Theresa Schmidt is in court and will have the latest as it becomes available.
