Rodriguez Jury Panel Picked

By  | 

A 42 person jury panel has been chosen in the trial of the fourth and final suspect in the 2002 US Bank killings in Norfolk.

Madison County Distrcit Court officials say the panel will be pared down to 12 jurors and two alternates later Friday and the court will adjourn until Tuesday, when the trial will begin.

Gabriel Rodriguez is accused of being the lookout man for three gunmen who entered the bank and shot five people. The other three suspects have all been convicted are awaiting decisions from a panel of judges on whether they will face the death penalty or life in prison.

Madison County Attorney Joe Smith has said he will not seek the death penalty for Rodriguez as he did in the other three cases.
