TAMPA - Dontae Morris sat quietly as his attorneys, state attorneys and the judge decided the next step in his murder trial -- where the jury will be selected from.
After dismissing 200 jurors on Wednesday, it was clear Judge William Fuente wasn't sure Morris could get a fair trial if the jury was selected from Hillsborough County.
Friday, Judge Fuente decided the jury pool would come from Orlando.
Left to decide: Where the trial will actually take place.
"[We still have to determine] whether to select the jurors in Orlando and then bring them back here and sequester them and try the case or select the jury in Orlando, not sequester them and try the case in Orlando," said Judge Fuente to the state and Morris' attorneys.
That determination will come on October 1 according to the judge. Giving him and the Orlando courts time to decide if its feasible to move the trial proceedings to a courtroom there or if they will simply bus the jurors to Hillsborough County.
In addition to finalizing where the jury pool would come from, attorneys and the judge all agreed the trial date would be set for March 4, 2013, giving them plenty of time to find jurors for the trial. The judge also noted he expects, once underway, the court proceedings will last about two weeks.
In the meantime, Morris will stay in police custody.
