Eleven jurors seated in deadly Wilton DWI trial
Opening arguments in the murder trial of Justin Rodriguez still hadn’t started on Tuesday.
Eleven jurors had been seated out of a pool of 130 prospective jurors, as of Tuesday afternoon. There’s one more juror and two alternates to go.
Rodriguez is accused of killing tow truck driver Alex Bleickhardt on the Northway in Wilton in September.
He was intoxicated when he crashed into Bleickhardt, who was helping a disabled vehicle, said prosecutors.
The court has asked 60 more potential jurors to report to the courthouse Wednesday morning. Once the jury is in place, Judge Jim Murphy will schedule opening arguments.
