Jury Selection Resumes in Loud Music Killing Case

A judge has yet to rule on whether to move the highly-publicized case.

The second trial of a Florida man accused of killing a teenager during an argument over loud music outside a Jacksonville convenience store is scheduled to resume.

Jury selection continues Wednesday as 47-year-old Michael Dunn's attorneys argue that intense media coverage of the case has made getting a fair jury impossible.

Circuit Judge Russell Healey has yet to rule on whether to move the case. The Florida Times-Union reports that more than 60 jurors have been qualified so far.

Prosecutors say Dunn killed 17-year-old Jordan Davis by firing 10 times into an SUV occupied by four teens.

A previous jury found Dunn guilty of attempted second-degree murder for firing the shots, but deadlocked on the first-degree murder charge.

Dunn faces at least 60 years in prison for the convictions.
