Can a fair jury be found for shooting spree trial?

GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (WOOD) — Jury selection begins this week in the trial of Jason Dalton, who is accused of killing six people nearly three years ago during a shooting rampage in the Kalamazoo area.

The bloody shooting spree gained international attention that could have an impact when it comes to picking a jury. The question is how to find a jury that isn’t tainted after so much information was disseminated to the public.

Surprisingly, officials say, it's not that difficult — but that doesn’t mean the courts aren’t being extra careful.

Muskegon County Prosecutor D.J. Hilson had to deal with two high-profile trials for murderer Jeffrey Willis, convicted in November of 2017 of the murder of Rebekah Bletsch and in May 2018 of the murder of Jessica Heeringa.
