Jury Seated in Priest Murder Case


TOLEDO -- A jury has been seated in the case of a priest accused of killing a nun in a hospital chapel. Just after 2:30, lawyers agreed to 12 jurors and 4 alternates for the case who will start hearing opening arguments on Friday.

Prosecutors and defense attorneys chose 5 men and 7 women as the primary jurors, with 3 women and 1 man as alternates. A further breakdown of the jurors is expected from the court later this afternoon.

After hearing opening arguments Friday morning, the jury will travel to the scene of the crime at the former Mercy Hospital, which is now a nursing school.
