On Tuesday, an attorney with the Capital Defender Office, asked that potential jurors be questioned individually; BUT the judge ruled that the panel of 18, potential jurors will be divided into groups of the three for sensitive questions. The judge also ruled against a motion by defense to allow for a victim outreach specialist in Witt’s case. Prosecution and defense are required to submit their questions for the jurors 21 days before the trial gets underway in February 2015.
