New Scotland murder jury selection down to two alternates

The trial continued Tuesday for Jacob Klein, the man accused of killing Philip Rabadi in Rabadi’s New Scotland home, last year.

A group of 86 potential jurors have been whittled down to 12 and two alternates.

The court began questioning jurors again on Tuesday morning to find two other alternates.

Klein and prosecution went back and forth without the jury on Tuesday morning.

They were debating what should be allowed during testimony, including which autopsy and crime scene photos and body camera recordings from deputies responding to the scene would be allowed.

Klein was advised by the judge to hold off on consulting excessively with his advisors or let them comment on record. That issue was raised by prosecutor Jessica Blain Lewis.

Jurors were questioned all day by prosecutors and Klein himself.
