Salman will stand trial in federal court in March on allegations that she knew about her husband’s plot to carry out the mass shooting and didn’t do anything to stop it.
Channel 9’s Shannon Butler learned in court Friday that 646 people have filled out the jury questionnaires, however, 169 were no shows. People had to answer questions like what they did for a living, their religious beliefs and how long they could be away from home.
The judge and attorneys will have to decide if they’ll forgive jurors who didn’t show up.
Eyewitness News learned some people were not selected as jurors because of the publicity, their age or because they were first responders.
Salman’s attorneys have filed a motion to have her trial moved out of Orlando. A judge has not made a decision.
