Jury selection continues for man accused of killing Jennifer Hudson's relatives

In most cases, jury selection is a process of de-selection rather than selection. In our system of justice, we do not truly pick who we want on the jury. Rather, we look to a pool of prospective jurors and weed out the ones we do not want until we are left with a "jury of our peers". In more serious homicides and many high profile cases, the lawyers are afforded the opportunity to select the best potential jurors from the pool. Jury selection can take from an hour to several days or even weeks depending on the location of the court, the nature of the case or even the rules of an individual judge.
