MOBILE, Ala. (WALA) - Jury selection is underway in the capital murder trial of a man accused of murdering a former Spring Hill Avenue realtor after breaking into her home.
Carlos Kennedy will go on trial for the death of 69-year-old Zoa White.
100 JURORS CALLED
Jury selection began Monday, May 6 with 100 potential jurors being called but instead of verbally answering questions, they filled out questionnaires.
White was found murdered in the kitchen of her Spring Hill area home the morning of June 28, 2010.
Mobile Police arrested Kennedy.
VICTIM'S DAUGHTER SPEAKS
After Kennedy's arrest, White's daughter talked about the arrest in September 2010.
She said, "I am very happy we have come to some conclusion and closure, but it's not over yet. We still have a long way to go."
REVIEWING THE QUESTIONNAIRES
Prosecutors are seeking the death penalty, and jury selection was expected to be longer than the typical criminal trial.
Monday, 100 potential jurors filled out questionnaires to get their views on capital punishment.
Prosecution and defense attorneys will review the answers and then the court will resume Wednesday morning.
Kennedy had originally wanted to represent himself in the case, but in October 2012, the court appointed an attorney to represent him.
On that day, there was the first look at DNA evidence in the case: a pair of blood stained shorts and numerous swabs from the crime scene.
Assistant District Attorney JoBeth Murphree said at the time, "The DNA evidence that was just testified is an important part of this case."
PENALTY, IF CONVICTED
If convicted, Kennedy faces up to life in prison without parole or the death penalty.
