Jury selection in Brevard County deputy murder trial going slowly



BREVARD COUNTY, Fla. - Jury selection is in its fourth day in the trial of a man accused of gunning down a Brevard County deputy.

Brandon Bradley, 24, is accused of killing Deputy Barbara Pill during a traffic stop in 2012.

As the days go on, different potential jurors are hearing questions that have been repeated each day this week.

Channel 9's Melonie Holt said the court is hard-pressed to find anyone who hasn’t heard about the case.  The challenge is, Holt said, finding those who haven't already made up their minds in the case.

At times on Thursday, Bradley looked fatigued as the day went on, Holt said.

Prosecutors are seeking the death penalty against Bradley in Pill's death.

Bradley's co-defendant, Andria Kerchner, pleaded guilty to her role in the case last month as part of a plea deal. She's expected to be a star witness for the prosecution.

A number of potential jurors who were released from the panel Thursday were told to be prepared to return next Thursday or Friday for another round of questioning.
