Davis & Saltzman Trial: District court continues jury selection

LAKE CHARLES, LA (KPLC) - Jury selection continues in the murder trial of Robyn Davis & Carol Sissy Saltzman.

Davis and Saltzman are on trial for second degree murder in connection with the killing of Davis's husband Brian in June 2009.

So far about 16 have been excused from the initial pool of 50 prospective jurors.

11 who made it through the initial questioning have been joined by 10 more who are now undergoing more specific questioning about issues likely to take center stage in the trial.

The purpose of questioning jurors is to pick a group of 12 and 2 alternates who can be fair to both sides.
