Jury Selection Continues in Trial of Pulse Gunman’s Widow

Jury selection continues in an Orlando federal court today for the trial of the widow of the Pulse gunman who is accused of helping her husband plan the massacre.

Noor Salman is accused of obstruction of justice and aiding and abetting her husband’s attack on the nightclub that killed 49 people.

Potential jurors were being asked last week how much they know about the Pulse nightclub attack, and for their feelings on terrorism, guns and the recent Parkland mass shooting.

Choosing a jury won’t be easy in this case in Orlando. So far, most potential jurors in the Orlando area have been familiar with the case given its extensive coverage in the news media.

At the time of the attack, it was the worst mass shooting in modern U.S. history.

It was surpassed last October by the fatal shooting of 58 people in Las Vegas.

So far, the jury pool includes 13 people with 18 more potential jurors to be questioned today.

The judge wants a pool of 56 people, from which a jury of 12 with six alternates will be chosen.
