Jury Selection Resumes for Darren Mack Murder Trial

Jury selection has resumed in the Darren Mack murder case in Las Vegas.

Court officials say 11 jurors are needed to fill a jury pool of 35. After that, lawyers and the judge will reduce that number to 12 jurors and three alternates.

Jury selection has gone slowly since last week. Testimony is expected to take three or four weeks.

Mack faces a murder charge in the stabbing death of his estranged wife and an attempted murder charge in the shooting of the Reno family court judge who was handling the couple's divorce.

The case was moved from Reno to Las Vegas after a judge decided
Mack couldn't get a fair trial in his hometown.
