BREVARD COUNTY, Fla. —

Channel 9 learned a jury could soon be seated and opening statements begin in the trial of a man accused of gunning down a Brevard County deputy.

Prosecutors are seeking the death penalty for Brandon Bradley, who is accused of killing Deputy Barbara Pill during a traffic stop two years ago.

In the second week of jury selection, no questions appeared to be off-limits, according to Channel 9's Melonie Holt.

Potential jurors were asked about their occupations, former occupations, their relatives' occupations and even their thoughts about race and racism.

Attorneys are close to seating a jury and opening statements could begin as soon as Tuesday once attorneys complete their final jury selection and the court hears motions to limit evidence in the case.

On Monday, attorneys tried their best to predict how jurors would react to upcoming testimony. Potential jurors were grilled on any possible connections to law enforcement, political parties, religious affiliations and race.

Not one potential juror said race would be a factor for them in weighing the evidence.

Jurors have been told to return to the courthouse at 10 a.m.
