Attorneys in Hammond murder trial finalizing jury selection

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Opening statements could start Thursday in Dejuan Hammond's latest murder trial.

Jury selection was still underway Wednesday.

Attorneys are letting potential jurors know that this case will involve graphic pictures and foul language.

This is the fourth attempt at trying Hammond for the 2009 murder of Troya Sheckles.

She was set to testify in Hammond's brother's murder trial.

Hammond has already seen two mistrials and in August, jury selection stalled during the third trial attempt.

A key witness who had refused to testify is now cooperating.

The trial is expected to last until early December.
