Jury selection continues in Mustard murder trial

Those involved in the trial of Daniel J. Mustard, a South Kitsap teen accused of killing his 87-year-old neighbor on April 5, 2009, spent last week starting to select a jury for the case.

They started with about 195 potential jurors, and are down to a pool of about 118.

One or two have been summarily dismissed, but lawyers have spoken with the majority.

“It’s just as tedious as can be,” said Mustard’s lawyer, Bryan Hershman. “And not only do I not fault the judge for that, I commend her. I think everyone’s being extra careful.”
